03 Socratic Circles

January 14, 2015

In house we study a series of Socratic Circles from a project with Lynsey Tveit and Jessica Hertz and compare other methods and practices such as Circle of Knowledge and The Unquiet Librarian's experiences with Twitter backchannels during Socratic Circles.  We interview Dr. Aaron Kuntz from the University of Alabama about his participation in the Disruptive Dialogue Project and the role of critical discussion in literacy development.  Finally our fourth graders discuss pros and cons of Socratic Circles with author James Sturtevant's seniors.
