Socratic Circles

Fostering critical and creative thinking in middle and high school

With real-world examples and answers to frequent questions, this book becomes a coaching guide for both the teacher new to Socratic seminars and the experienced teacher looking to maximize the benefits of this powerful strategy. Socratic seminars enhance reading comprehension, listening and speaking skills, and build better classroom community and conflict resolution skills. Students will gain ownership over classroom discussions, bolstering independence and motivation to learn and explore further. Socratic Circles shows teachers familiar with literature circles the many ways in which these two practices complement and extend each other, enriching the classroom experience for both student and teacher.
