Lesson 1: An Example of Socratic Teaching (Preview Content)

We thought it would be best to start this course with an example of Socratic teaching before trying to describe it. In this video veteran teacher Grant Horner leads a group of 10th graders in a Socratic discussion about film, culture, and theology. This discussion was filmed at the Regents School of Austin in one of the 10th grade classes at the school. Grant was a guest teacher for this class and the students had just been introduced to him when he sat down at the table to lead this discussion.
