Reflection: ELL Students Macro-Structures of Animals - Flying Animals - Section 4: Socratic Dialogue


Playing Socratic Smackdown can provide levels of differentiation in how you play it. If you have four group of students play the game, have your students who find it challenging to speak their thoughts go first. This way they have the option of answering a question any way they like. In subsequent groups of students, I don't let them repeat information already discussed in previous rounds so this becomes more challenging. Your advanced students should go last as they may find it most difficult to find new information to add to the discussion, which is fun and challenging for them, but could be more difficult for students who experience a learning disability or who have limited English proficiency.
