Socrates believed in the power of questions rather than lecturing his students. But how did we get so far away from his method of inquiry? Shanna Peeples, 2015 National Teacher of the Year, will show you how teachers can create an engaging atmosphere that encourages student questions and honors their experiences. This resource provides

  •  Questions paired with sample texts
  • Step-by-step lessons for generating and using students’ questions
  • Lesson extensions for English language learners, special education students, and gifted and talented students
  • Writing suggestions, in-class debate questions, and scoring rubrics
  • Multimedia texts
  • Protocols for using inquiry with adults as a base for professional development

Industry Reviews

"Shanna Peeples (2015 National Teacher of the Year) speaks a voice that's not heard often enough in the places where critical decisions are made about education—the voice of the experienced, devoted, and passionate teacher. As a nation, we should never make educational policy without asking whether it will support pedagogical practices of the sort this book advocates. If students learned to 'think like Socrates,' it would benefit them, their workplaces and communities, and our democracy in countless ways. May this book find tens of thousands of readers who want to put Shanna's well-tested insights into practice!"
