Special Engagement: Level II Socratic Seminar to Meet the Arizona College and Career Ready Standards with Diana Green
Special Engagement: Using Socratic Seminar to Meet the Arizona College and Career Ready Standards with Diana Green Level II

The Level II session of Socratic Seminar will build on the basic seminar skills from the first session as we delve deeper into ideas and values, complexity and challenge, and relevance to the curriculum.

Socratic Seminar is a deep analysis of substantive text and works of quality by a group of students /participants facilitated by a teacher or leader. The main goal is for students to build a conceptual understanding of the texts and ideas by asking and answering questions, citing evidence, and conversing with each other in order to make meaning. During this one-day session, participants will:

• Discuss and synthesize excerpts from selected literary, mathematical, and scientific texts to create a collective understanding during Socratic Seminar
• Explore advanced questioning techniques for the purpose of expanding ideas that enable participants to clarify their thinking during discussion
• Develop questions for seminar texts that incorporate Hess’ Cognitive Rigor Matrix: Levels 4 & 5 Depth of Knowledge (DOK) questions
• Learn to incorporate the components of Common Core using text dependent questions, close reading, and argument-based writing into the Socratic Seminar planning process
• Examine examples of post-seminar assignments from the text

Participants need to have attended a Level I Socratic Seminar course and have some classroom experience implementing Socratic Seminars before attending a Level II session.

Materials to bring to class:
Please bring the text from Level I - Teaching Critical Thinking – Using Seminars for 21st Century Thinking

No food or beverages will be provided, so please plan accordingly.

Research, Information, and Writing Fluency: Developing Independent and Engaged Researchers and Writers
Research has always been a cornerstone of human learning and achievement. Teaching students to take control of their own research is critical if we want them to become independent, engaged, and active learners rather than passive receivers of information. How can we engage students in the research process so they see it as a relevant, transferable skill and not an assigned school task?

Students must be able to navigate, comprehend, and organize information confidently if we want them to participate in academic conversations and to create and defend sound arguments in a variety of disciplines and careers. This is especially important as we increase our demand for the solid incorporation of evidence and reasoning into student work in all content areas.

Not only do students need to know how to strategically navigate and evaluate information from multiple media formats, they need to be able to use that media to strategically and collaboratively share information as well. Does how we teach 'research' need to change? How has it evolved?

All participants will receive Christopher Lehman’s book, Energize Research Reading and Writing. While the book is geared to grades 4-8, the strategies and ideas are completely relevant to the upper grades as well.

PLEASE BRING A DEVICE TO DO RESEARCH!

Target Audience: grades 4-12 classroom teachers.

Participants will be eligible for 5.5 hours of Professional Development credit.

Integrating Mathematical Practices in Instruction, Grades 6-12
The eight Standards for Mathematical Practice describe the behaviors and habits of mind of mathematically proficient students. Mathematically proficient students make sense of problems, reason, construct arguments, model, use tools, are precise, use structure, and look for regularity. The Practices bridge content knowledge with application and understanding in mathematics. In order to effectively build that bridge educators need to experience these Practices and investigate the implications for classroom instruction.

In this workshop participants will:
• investigate the Mathematical Practices through a problem-solving lens,
• work collaboratively on math tasks to recognize and apply Mathematical Practices,
• watch videos to identify evidence of Mathematical Practices,
• analyze student actions that appear when Mathematical Practices are integrated with content,
• analyze teacher actions and instruction that supports students’ development of Mathematical Practices,
• discuss how Mathematical Practices support mathematics learning and understanding.

Be ready to work in collaborative groups.

Special Engagement: Using Socratic Seminar to Meet AZCCRS with Diana Green
Using Socratic Seminar to Meet Arizona's College and Career Ready Standards for Listening, Thinking, Speaking, Reading and Writing

Socratic Seminar is a deep analysis of works of quality and substance by a group of students facilitated by a teacher. A text can be a piece of literature, informative text, such as social studies and science, historical documents, or a piece of art or music. The main goal is for students to build conceptual understanding of the texts and ideas by asking questions, citing evidence, and conversing with each other to make meaning. Often, seminars are followed with a reflective piece of writing. Effectively implemented, Socratic seminars enhance reading comprehension, speaking, listening and writing skills; a perfect vehicle for teaching Arizona's College and Career Ready Standards.

This one day session will include:
• Explanation of Socratic seminar
• Participation in a group seminar
• Discussion regarding how to select seminar readings and develop seminar questions for classes at all levels
• Development of and participation in mini-seminars
• A packet of materials, a book, and resources

You will receive and use the following book in the session:
Teaching Critical Thinking – Using Seminars for 21st Century Literacy by Terry Roberts and Laura Billings

Presenter: Diana Green
Diana Green first began leading Socratic seminars while teaching middle school in Chattanooga, TN. She was trained at the Paideia Institute in Chicago where she learned the time-honored strategies that have endured the classic seminar structure. Diana currently works in Humboldt Unified School District where she has served as a principal, and is now Director of Education Services. Socratic seminar will always remain a passion in her repertoire of professional development for teachers.
