Reflection: Staircase of Complexity Socratic Seminar for Mason Dixon Memory - Section 4: Seminar


Last time we had a seminar (about Song of the Trees), each team when a little over 5 minutes. This time they both went 7 minutes. Their academic talk stamina is not high but each time I have given them a goal as far as time. It is important for me to remember that I have to meet students where they are at and continually build upon their skills by giving them more practice.
