What is the Socratic Method? How can we bring the Socratic Method into the middle school and high school classroom? How does a teacher lead a Socratic discussion and develop the discussion skills of students? Using passages from the works of Plato and Xenophon, Teach Like Socrates answers each of these questions, clearly explaining the most famous and the most misunderstood teaching method in the world.
Unrivaled as a constructive vehicle for critical thinking and problem solving, the Socratic Method can be brought into the classroom every day for the inductive exploration of ideas and scaffolded problem solving as well as for cooperative discussion. Teach Like Socrates includes templates, sample lesson plans, discussion games, and example dialogues from students. With this book, every teacher can master the style that leads students to critical thinking, problem solving, and independent learning.
