Socratic Method

A brilliant example of use of the Socratic Method to teach a very complex set of ideas to young children. I’ve said a couple of times during Instruction meetings here at UTC that I really love the Socratic Method, largely because it engenders frustration, and it’s frustration that builds self-motivation for learning. I know that I learn more when I’m frustrated by something not quite working the way I want…I think that students do as well. At least, it’s a possible motivator for them…any motivation is sometimes good motivation. 🙂

Anyone in LibraryLand using the Socratic Method in Library Instruction?
