Hi and welcome to The Briny English Teacher! I have been an English Language and English Literature educator since 2007 in both a UK and international setting. My experiences are as an English Teacher, Head of Department, Examiner, and Moderator across KS3, KS4 and KS5. My philosophy is that students should be responsible for developing their own learning and many of my resources adhere to that belief rather than spoon-feeding answers.

Socratic (or Harkness) lesson structures can be an incredibly powerful tool for allowing students to develop their understanding and independence,When used effectively, it can be an incredibly useful tool for:
-Checking student understanding of a topic, idea, or text.
-Encouraging students to develop their ZPD and metacognitive skills.
-Allowing students to develop their speaking and listening skills and their powers of debate.

This guide is in the context of English, but can be adapted for any subject.
