Socratic dialogue transforms a student’s learning experience by allowing youth to generate and express their own ideas while the teacher asks questions. It is collaborative, intellectual dialogue facilitated with open-ended questions about a topic, text, or issue. When done purposefully, the outcome is improved student achievement in speaking, listening and writing; higher youth motivation; fewer behavior problems; and a more respectful school culture.
