Improved Oral Proficiency Through Socratic Seminar

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Harness the power of Socratic Seminar - a collaborative, text focused dialogue that will motivate your students to new levels of proficiency. Engaging and communicative, Socratic Seminar motivates students to express and question their opinions while citing texts in a real setting where their opinion counts. Students are focused on communication while applying complex linguistic structures. Also, students will be better prepared for similar writing tasks they will encounter on AP language exams. Following your participation you can feel confident as you plan and execute this powerful, immersive strategy.
