Session Abstract

In this interactive sequel to "What up Socrates?", we continue our exploration of the Socratic Seminar, in general, and the use of technology, in particular. Participants (of all levels) will be more confident in running a Socratic Seminar, demystifying Evidence-Based Argumentation, and incorporating imovie and blogging into their practice.
