Transcript of Socratic Seminar

The Socratic Seminar: A Form of Assessment We will split the class into 2 groups:

Group 1: Are Romeo and Juliet really in love or are they two teenagers making drastic mistakes?

Group 2: Is the feud between the Capulets and the Montagues the cause of Romeo and Juliet's death? You will get ONE notecard. On this notecard,
you will make a claim (answer the question!)
and pull pieces of evidence from R&J to help you
make your argument. Write down anything
that will help you prove your claim
to someone trying to prove the
opposite side. You will be graded on:
Oral Communication- 15 points
Collaboration- 10 points
Work Ethic- 10 points Your oral communication grade will

Your work ethic grade will be determined by how

Your collaboration grade will be determined
by how well your group functioned as a whole. READ your rubrics VERY carefully in order to figure out what it takes to get a good grade. Your grade is dependent on each other... so make sure everyone understands!

1. Every one in the circle will speak once before anyone speaks twice.

2. Everyone is courteous and respectful at all times. We use each other's names, we make eye contact, and we speak loudly and clearly
3. Everyone comes prepared to discuss the text

4. No one in the outer circle will speak during discussion.

5. The teacher will facilitate, rather than lead.
Group 1 starts as the inner circle where they will be discussing their question.

While group 1 is discussing, group 2 will be silently grading their partners.
