The Habit of Thought Chapter Three: Four Classroom Models

New Media  | 31 de julio de 2008  | Vistas: 3459

During this interview series, hosted by Luis Figueroa, Michael Strong, author of the bestseller The Habit of Thought, describes the theory, basis, and vision of Socratic practice, a novel approach to classroom instruction. In chapter three, "Four Classroom Models: Integrating Socratic Seminars into Content-Driven Classrooms," Strong explains how classroom contents can be integrated with Socratic practice by developing student-driven discussions. This method helps students to develop independent judgement, abandon passive attitudes, and learn to take responsibility for their own ideas and learning.
