Film Seminar: A New Socratic Discourse

Friday, March 23 8:00 AM - 9:15 AM

Presenters: Barb Scholtz, Erika Eicholz

Target Audience: Secondary I, Secondary II

Film is a legitimate if nontraditional kind of text, worth “reading” closely to probe ideas, issues, and values that strengthen comprehension and interpretive capabilities. Learn how to establish meaningful and critical viewing, structure Socratic discourse around films as text, and discover how the seminar format fulfills Montessori’s vision of valorization, social independence, and group cooperation.
