This course is designed to introduce participants to the philosophy and pedagogy of student centered classroom dialogue.

Teachers will learn how to  implement Socratic Dialogue as well as the Harkness Pedagogy in a variety of  disciplines and will have the opportunity to  work with colleagues to plan lessons using these approaches.  This course is  appropriate for upper elementary  through high school teachers.
