How to Create, Develop, Sustain and Assess a Socratic Seminar

Program presented by Peg Grafwallner

The Socratic Seminar is an iconic method of teaching inquiry while using textual based evidence. However, the art of inquiry often gets lost since the teacher is usually the one asking the questions. In this presentation, Peg will offer background on the significance of teaching inquiry and how to assist students in developing confidence within questioning. In addition, Peg will demonstrate how to give students the opportunity to learn how to ask questions and the chance to improve inference skills grounded in the text. Finally, Peg will show that by embedding inquiry into your content area, students are more likely to make connections and become critical readers.

This is the second in the series of live webinars for the Central Zone.
