John’s recent request that we think about Socratic Circles in this work made me think of an idea. Of course we know that anything involving the conscious mind in our CI classes can’t work, but then Sean suggested kids plugging themselves into or out of the center circle.
This is an untested idea spurred by what Sean said:
- Divide the class into two teams.
- First team gets 30 min. to make a story (story writer and timer are active here)
- Second team – same thing for the next 30 minutes.
- See what happens.
The teams making the story sit front and center while the others watch. Then reverse it.
I’ll try it tomorrow in my advanced class.
