how do I learn how to do socratic questioning?

Recommended Posts

I will be doing lit. at home with my Junior daughter-we might use TOG but I am not sure. In any case, I don't know enough about socratic questioning at this point and need to learn for next fall-she has always done on line classes before now. Is there any good lectures I could listen to or books to read? Nothing to complicated, please.

Thanks so much!!

The Tapestry discussions are already pretty much ready to go. You often hear that Tapestry isn't open and go, but the lit and history discussion for R and D students are one place where it is.


I do find that sometimes I need to probe if I'm not getting an answer that matches what they put OR break a bigger questions that leaps from one set of facts to a conclusion into a set of smaller questions to guide them along.


The talk Marcia gives is helpful in terms of this, but the more you do, the better you'll get.
