Socratic Seminar
I am thinking about doing a Socratic Seminar in my Math 1 (Algebra I) class. Has anyone ever done one in math class and if so what types of questions did you ask to get the discussions started? How did you structure the seminar?
Thanks in advance for any help.

I went to a math conference where I learned about socratic seminar in math class and how a teacher did it in her classroom. Check out this link and let me know if it does not work

I have tried this a few times in my classroom. And I think the structure of this is very meaningful with a rich problem. But I struggle with how to do this on a regular basis.

I am open to collaborating on how to do this more with you! Just message me and let me know :)

I would love to collaborate with you on ideas. I am going to try to use this when opening my unit on exponential functions with math 1. I have an Alice in Wonderland scenario that I plan to use. I will let you know how it goes.
I can't private message you because I am a new member but you can send me one and I can reply.
