      Socratic Seminars! My 8th graders tackle amazingly controversial issues. They demonstrate public speaking skills, inclusionary tactics, respectful responses and deep thinking. It is a beautiful activity to watch.

        Thanks for sharing! Giving them the starting point of agree, disagree or not sure gives students a starting point for their thinking and I would think that as different perspectives are shared, everyone gets an opportunity develop their thoughts.

          That is exactly right Satinder! They really do get such great practice in truly listening to one another and explaining their thinking. Even when they are unsure, they have to say why they are unsure, so no one has a "way out" of sharing their thinking. The best part is it is completely judgement-free and creates such an amazing culture of learning!
