Socratic Seminars in Action

AVID students at Stout Middle School are practicing Socratic Seminars.  The linked video (below) captures a Socratic Seminar based on an article claiming all students should have paid employment while going to school.

Socratic Seminars are structured, collaborative dialogues, focusing on a common text or resource.  Students prepare for the dialogue by analyzing the text and preparing questions to spur the discussion.  This strategy provides a format for students to practice skills in critical thinking, reading, and inquiry, as they participate in the inquiry-based dialogue.
