Today’s great tidbit comes from Teaching Tricks’ Twitter feed, where she reminds us of the power of a well-crafted question. You might not have the time, interest, or training to lead a full Socratic seminar, but it’s always a good idea whenever possible to answer students’ questions with another question that will lead them to find their own answers.
I’m having a hard time tracking down the infographic’s original artist, so please let me know if you know the source and I’ll give credit where it’s due.
Teach on, everyone!

Already did a Socratic seminar this year! My students’ summer homework was The Good Earth, so I had them do a group investigation on foot binding in class and the next day we held a seminar on cultural beauty standards. It was amazing! Love the info graphic; wish I had it as a poster!
Awesome, Stephanie! I, too, wish the graphic was a poster. Good stuff.
This is great, Laura! I will give this infographic to my students to help guide them through the process. Thank you for finding–and sharing–this little gem!
