Thinking about trying out a socratic seminar? With students a little more chatty at the end of the school year, seminars can be a practical way to continue student-centered discussions. TYWLS Bronx 6th graders are reading The Giver and several informational articles that help the students answer their essential question: What makes a perfect society? Check out ELA teacher Vanessa Paula's 6th grade class facilitating their own socratic seminar. Also included is the student facilitator guide and a socratic seminar rubric to evaluate your students.
