  7. What are Socratic Seminars?<br />Highly motivatingform of intellectual and scholarly discourse.<br />
  8. An effective Socratic Seminar creates dialogue as opposed to debate. <br />

  10. A technology-enhanced Socratic Seminar also uses social media . . . More about this later.<br />
  11. The Question<br />A Socratic Seminar opens with a <br />Question<br />posed by the leader or solicited from participants as they acquire more experience in seminars. <br />Responses to the opening question generate new questions from the leader and participants, leading to new responses. <br />http://www.greece.k12.ny.us/instruction/ELA/SocraticSeminars/faqsaboutss.htm<br />

  15. The Participants<br />In a Socratic Seminar, participants carry the burden of responsibility for the quality of the seminar. <br />There are three ways to do this:<br />Studying <br />Participating<br />Sharing<br />.<br />
  16. Dialogue is a skill of collaboration that enables groups to<br />create <br />collective <br />thinking<br />
  17. The Text<br />Socratic Seminar texts are chosen for richness in ideas, issues, values and their ability to stimulate dialogue. <br />A good text raises important<br />questions<br />There are no right or wrong answers. <br />At the end of successful Socratic Seminars, participants often leave with more questions than they brought with them.<br />
