American School-Tampico in a Global Collaboration Socratic Smackdown with SGMS!
Donald Trump is a controversial figure in both the United States and Mexico. What would happen if students from Mexico and the United States got together and discussed his policies and programs? A great discussion! Students were well informed and discussed the issues in a Socratic format.
SGMS and America School in Tampico in Action
In the method of the great Greek philosopher, Socrates, students discuss key topics not by debate but by dialogue. Students are in four groups:
- Fishbowl-Participants in the discussion
- Judges-They keep score of the people in the fishbowl
- Coaches-They examine the group and provide feedback on what went well and what could be done better.
- Instant Replay-This group reflects on how they performed in the Socratic circle.
