Sharing Practice through Socratic Seminars
Mangrum, Jennifer R.
Phi Delta Kappan, v91 n7 p40-43 Apr 2010
Developing systems and opportunities for effective dialogue is critical if schools wish to help teachers work collectively. One school used Socratic seminars, structured conversations about selected texts. These seminars helped teachers to build relationships, share practice, and change curriculum and policy. The seminars also were critical to enhancing the satisfaction the teachers felt with their jobs.
