Giving Students Voice Through Socratic Seminars

Join me as I sit in on Chalimar Chieza's 9th grade World Geography class as they dive into a socratic seminar. Hear students form hypotheses around the question**"why do people around the world have different skin tones?"** as well as my discussion with Chalimar on how she structures the socratic seminar so all students have a voice.

We discuss the following:

  • her role as facilitator
  • how the socratic method shapes the socratic seminar
  • the roles of the 'inner circle' and 'outter circle' during the seminar
  • data she collects during every seminar
  • how she assesses the students
  • the most challenging aspects of setting up a successful seminar
  • how she debriefs the seminar with the students
  • how she ensures that all students have a voice
