The Seven Step Strategy
Schaffer, Connie
College Teaching, v65 n3 p148-149 2017
Many well-intended instructors use Socratic or leveled questioning to facilitate the discussion of an assigned reading. While this engages a few students, most can opt to remain silent. The seven step strategy described in this article provides an alternative to classroom silence and engages all students. Students discuss a single reading as they progress through increasingly complex cognitive levels (Bloom 1956). The first several steps resemble familiar think-pair-share strategies. However, by mid-strategy, students advance to higher cognitive levels and continue this advancement through the final steps.
