Reflection: Perseverance Are We Good? Ancient Greek Philosophy and Socrates - Section 3: Good Vs Evil Student Led Discussion


The discussion was really awesome. Students were excited to share their thinking and try to think of how to answer the questions I would propose along the way. I had one student finally exclaim that it was frustrating to be questioned constantly and that there was never an easy answer. This is where put the discussion on pause to connect to how the government of Athens might have felt the same. 

Students really pushed their thinking and had a lot of respect for each other as they did so. It was exciting to see so many share their thoughts and be able to connect at the end. I closed by asking them to figure out a time in their life when they might need to question everything. Students offered some great responses relating to voting, friends, and how they might need to make hard choices.
