#29 Bringing Socratic Seminars Into Your Teaching with Kerry Graham (如何融合蘇格拉底式討論於教學中)

"I just want them to grow in their confidence and I want them to know that being uncomfortable doesn't mean something impossible. I want them to know the power of their voices and how special their thoughts are. I want them to be good listeners and compassionate with their spoken words" -- Kerry Graham

In this episode, it is all about Socratic Seminars. Socratic Seminars is a teaching strategy to guide student-led discussion. This time, we are excited to have Kerry Graham joining us and sharing her experience in this strategy. 

Kerry is not only a teacher but also a writer. She lives and kayaks in Baltimore, MD, USA, after graduating from Johns Hopkins University School of Education,. Kerry prioritizes laughter, compassion, and self-expression in her English classroom. She's grateful for and humbled by her ten years as a public school teacher.
