Socratic Seminar Planning

4 Essential Collaborative Planning Questions to Keep in Mind...

  1. What is it we want our students to learn?
  2. How will we know if each student has learned it?
  3. How will we respond when some students do not learn it?
  4. How can we extend and enrich the learning for students who have demonstrated proficiency?
