What Would Socrates Ask?

…if Socrates were teaching your students?

To have engaged and deep discussion in the classroom we sometimes need to ask the right questions. This session will provide participants the opportunity to practice a handful of simple yet powerful logic-powered “Socrates” questions that, when applied a certain way, can help (1) reduce the time and stress of responding to stressed student emails — especially the kind that come in toward the end of the semester, (2) manage challenging and high-stakes discussions in the classroom, and (3) build logic-powered reasoning skills (students’ and your own!), and (4) create a robust question-asking culture in the classroom, and beyond. This class is led by Karla Pierce, of the Humanities Department, and will take place from 10 -11 on Friday April 29th and again May, 6th.
