In a series of segments, Luis Figueroa interviews Michael Strong, the author of The Habit of Thought. This book describes the theory, practice, and vision of Socratic practice, a novel and increasingly widespread approach to classroom instruction. In chapter one, Strong mentions the elements of a Socratic seminar, explains the differences between a Socratic seminar and a class discussion, and describes the role of the Socratic tutor. Throughout this interview, Strong argues that Socratic practice fosters a culture of learning in the classroom and ultimately helps people to become mature, independent thinkers.
