Review: Socratic Circles: Fostering Critical and Creative Thinking in Middle and High School
Socratic Circles: Fostering Critical and Creative Thinking in Middle and High School by Matt Copeland
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A useful text for developing Socratic dialogue in class rooms. Some of it is more relevant for (as the title indicates) middle and high school literature classes, but I found a lot here that can be adapted to my classes. Copeland's suggestions on pre- and post-discussion activities and assessment techniques also will be, I think(and hope), helpful. I also really liked the examples he provides of actual student dialogues.
