“Spider Web Discussion is an adaptation of the Socratic seminar in that it puts students squarely in the center of the learning process, with the teacher as a silent observer and recorder of what she sees students saying and doing during the discussion.” This group of Middle School students are using this method as they discuss Sophie’s World, a novel that explores the philosophical concepts of Western thought.
Fun on the toddler playground from earlier today!
"The middle school has been using spider web discussions, a Socratic influenced method developed by educator Alexis Wiggins. Since we’re reading about Socrates, it made sense to use the form for our discussion. Students took the initiative to be the moderators, and the level of discourse that ensued was inspiring."
Parent/Teacher Conferences are being held virtually for Children's House - Middle School families this Friday. CH and ELI, if you have yet to complete your pre-conference questionnaire, we ask that you please do so prior to the conference. Links can be found in Friday's Bay Farm Connections email. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance. Thank you.
