Socratic Seminar Method
By interacting with your novels, you will increase your comprehension and ability to discuss what you know. When you meet with your friends to complete art projects and Web-based activities, you will turn reading into a social activity, which will encourages you to keep reading.
The Socratic seminar is a formal discussion, based on a text, in which I will ask open-ended questions.
