TEACH LIKE SOCRATES: GUIDING SOCRATIC DIALOGUES AND DISCUSSIONS IN THE CLASSROOM - BOOK REVIEW

Nesrin Ozturk

Abstract


16 centuries ago, Socrates implemented a pedagogy of critical thinking where he helped others move from premise to premise to a discovery. In the current context, the 21st century’s stakeholders are bombarded with a great amount of information and should still engage in critical thinking to discern what is important, reliable, and valid or not, to apply, analyze, and evaluate information, as well as to create and collaborate for new knowledge. In this sense, Socratic pedagogy can be an effective tool for such competencies and thereby, it is important for teachers to develop knowledge and skills to practice Socratic methodologies in mainstream classrooms. As published materials may offer teachers support with their professionalism, Teach Like Socrates: Guiding Socratic Dialogues and Discussions in the Classroom was reviewed for its efficiency and practicality for classroom instruction.
