Socratic Questions, part of the website called Changing Minds, gives a brief summary of the origin of Socratic Questioning. It then lists some fabulous question stems for encouraging deeper thinking from our students. I would recommend printing this out, and keeping it nearby during classroom discussions. In the frenetic pace of a typical school day, it can be difficult to spend time on critical thinking, but it really is essential for the learning of our students.
