Place Value Socratic Circles for Diverse Mathematical Learners (4th Grade)


Try the hottest approach to math group work and differentiated work for diverse learners!

Socratic Background:

According to Merriam-Webster, the word So·crat·ic is of or relating to the ancient Greek philosopher Socrates, his followers, or his method of asking questions to discover the truth. Socrates (469-399 B.C.), a Greek philosopher, is best known for creating the teaching practice of pedagogy, in which a teacher questions students in a particular way that pulls out the correct answer. 

Students form Socratic Circles in order to promote higher level thinking, differentiated discussions, and questioning techniques. The Socratic Method also allows students to learn from one another in multiple ways. Perfect topic review for State Tests or for an in-depth review of place value.
