Engaging Teaching Strategies

Click here for active engagement teaching strategies that will enliven the learning experience. This article was in the March 2014 edition of Principal Leadership.

BTW - I did my first Socratic Seminar in my freshman Pathway to AVID class. Was it perfect? No.  Did I follow all of the rules? No. Did 5-7 minutes go by in which the students were responsible for responding to one another's inquiry and statements using civil conversational tones occur? Yes. I now realize all of my angst about doing a Socratic Seminar was me putting my own self in a headlock.  Now I need to ground the practice, follow more of the Socratic Seminar protocol so that it is not just a controversial question they are answering but substantiating their argument with evidence from two articles.
