Students can use this flipbook as a reference during academic conversation and discussions. These skills should be explicitly taught, and eventually students shouldn't need to reference these speaking stems during conversation. Until they have mastered these speaking skills, this flipbook provides appropriate scaffolding for their conversations. Speaking "stems," "starters," or "frames" have been organized by conversation skill (5 tabs) and even further into ways to prompt the skill through questioning and ways to respond (t-chart on each tab). The 5 Conversation Skills by which the stems are organized: 1. Elaborate and Clarify Ideas 2. Support Ideas with Examples 3. Build on Ideas or Challenge 4. Paraphrase What's Been Said 5. Synthesize the Conversation

"The Socratic seminar is one of the best teaching techniques for engaging students in critical thinking and meaningful discussion of a text. Students are expected to articulate their own thoughts as well as listen and respond to others in the the group. The purpose of the seminar is not to debate or prove a point but to discuss open ended questions and explore many facets of a text." (https://empathyandinquiry.wordpress.com/2016/02/17/in-praise-of-the-socratic-seminar/) This is a rubric for scoring Socratic Seminar discussions in your classroom. It is a convenient word document, so you can enter your own students names along the top. Simply use checkmarks next to each criteria to assess how students are doing. Socratic seminars strongly support common core comprehension, speaking, and listening standards. Distinguish between Below Basic, Basic, Proficient, and Advanced. Some (but not all) of the criteria included: -Uses body language and eye contact to indicate active listening for the duration of the seminar -Both poses and responds to questions -Builds on the thoughts of others by using appropriate transitions -Asks clarifying questions -Quotes the text to support a point -Uses language of recognition and appreciation to promote collaborative, collegial discussions
The Six Thinking Hats® is a tool that has been used by people in the business world and the educational community. This methodology of thinking was invented by Dr. Edward De Bono. He is considered an expert in the field of creative thinking and the direct teaching of thinking as a skill. He has written sixty-two books which have been translated into thirty-seven languages. Dr. de Bono has earned, (M.D., Ph.D.), degrees in medicine, psychology, physiology, and philosophy, and Rhodes Scholar. He has held faculty positions at the universities of Oxford, Cambridge, London, and Harvard. The six hats critical thinking strategy is an excellent tool to be used in any subject area to extend student thinking and understanding. This strategy pushes students to think about the current topic/concept through six different perspectives. The 6 Hats strategy can be used whole class, in small groups, or individually. Included in this bundle: • Table tents for each of the six hats so you can assign each table in your classroom to “put on” one hat and then share out ideas. • Bookmarks for students to keep in hand during partner work, group work, stations, discussions, etc. I suggest printing these on cardstock and laminating them. • 5 different graphic organizers that could be used with the 6 Hats strategy For more information about how to introduce 6 Hats to your class, visit http://sisdtx.sharpschool.com/common/pages/DisplayFile.aspx?itemId=17274974
