Reflection: Grappling with Complexity Volcanoes: Beginning Socratic Seminar With a Focus on Vocabulary - Section 4: Seminar


The actual lesson took too long today, so we did not actually begin the seminar.  Scholars needed more time to read and analyze the words within the text.  Since this was the first time using the tag boards and highlighting key words, scholars needed a bit more time and support than I originally anticipated.  Also, watching the video three times at the beginning of the lesson took more time than I originally planned.  Tomorrow, I will shorten the cue set/guided practice so that we can get to our discussion.
