  Socratic method - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Socratic method (or method of elenchos or Socratic debate) is a dialectic method of inquiry, largely applied to the examination of key moral concepts and first described by Plato in the Socratic Dialogues.
The method of Socrates is a search for the underlying hypotheses, assumptions, or axioms, which may subconsciously shape one's opinion, and to make them the subject of scrutiny, to determine their consistency with other beliefs.
For this method to work, the students are expected to be prepared for class in advance by reading the assigned materials (case opinions, notes, law review articles, etc.) and by familiarizing themselves with the general outlines of the subject matter.

 Second Language Teaching Methods - CAL Resource Guide Online
The method concept in language teaching—the notion of a systematic set of teaching practices based on a particular theory of language and language learning—is a powerful one, and the quest for better methods preoccupied teachers and applied linguists throughout the 20th century.
Within methodology a distinction is often made between methods and approaches, in which methods are held to be fixed teaching systems with prescribed techniques and practices, and approaches are language teaching philosophies that can be interpreted and applied in a variety of different ways in the classroom.
A chart outlines characteristics of these aspects of the methods: goals, teacher and student roles, the teaching/learning process, student-teacher and student-student interaction, dealing with feelings, view of language and culture, the aspects of language emphasized, the role of the students' native language, means for evaluation, and response to student errors.

After nine years of teaching, and winning a teaching award from the American Heart Association and a graduate fellowship from the New York State Department of Education, I was burning out.
When a teacher uses this method, students learn in a profound way because they see that the subject being taught has an aesthetic structure that can be understood and liked, and that this same structure is in themselves and in the world.
I am convinced that this is the teaching method that will enable students to learn in schools throughout this country.

A common teaching practice that most dance instructors choose to give structure to the class, help the beginner at mastering the steps and help the student remember the steps between dance class sessions is to teach dance routines that are comprised of a fixed progression of figures.
A now popular teaching method to help overcome the difficulties of learning style are master classes at dance seminars which tend to be given by dance instructors intimately familiar with the region from which the dances originate and are usually members of that ethnic community.

 Secure Seat(sm)
Although it initially appears that the method is slow, the students will have a correct, secure, harmonious seat much more quickly than with traditional methods which involve telling the student where to put his/her body parts in space, which always results in stiffness.
The Secure Seat(sm) method of teaching will not only result in a soft balanced seat but also in the seat least likely to be lost due to the sudden movement of the horse, hence the name “Secure Seat”(sm).
The Secure Seat(sm) method is so easy and reliable that it has been used successfully for several years at many children’s summer camps where the teaching situation is not always the best.

Coff began his teaching career at Boston's New England Conservatory Preparatory Department and was one of the first in America to use the Suzuki Method to provide training for young children.
Just as one would never teach young children to read before they have learned to speak, Suzuki violin teachers defer reading until there is a technical mastery of basic skills for playing and musical memory has been developed sufficiently.
While the Suzuki violin method may be the superior approach, within both the Suzuki method and the traditional schools of violin teaching, there are some good teachers, few excellent teachers, and too many teachers who are less than adequate.

 Abstracts: THE ART OF INTERACTIVE TEACHING   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
The author's interactive-based self-assessment of teaching provides a framework for college teachers to: (1) reflect on their self-assessments, (2) account for discrepancies between their self-assessments and students' impressions of their teaching, (3) modify their self-evaluations and (4) modify their teaching and/or manner of relating to their students.
The usefulness of the method is open to question due to issues relating to the realism of cases and a diversity of academic views concerning the nature of the strategy process.
This paper discusses the rationale for the teaching note and contrary views with respect to: objectives, methods of analysis, classroom-tested cases, qualitative vs. quantitative emphasis, the epilogue, and teaching methods.

The primary focus of effective case method teaching is not on the transmission of information; it is on the development of managerial perspectives and analytical, evaluative, and problem-solving skills.
The focus of effective case method teaching is not on finding the right answer; it is on thoroughly exploring a project or managerial situation and using the available facts and analytical skills to reach reasonable decisions on courses of action.
In institutions where the case method is well established, case teachers do not necessarily have to be case writers, because a sufficient corps of writers has grown up to ensure the existence of a sound body of basic cases, as well as the continuous creation of fresh cases to take account of changing conditions.

 Other Methods
The term "reading method" is closely associated with the work of Micheal West (e.g., 1926, Learning to read a foreign language: an experimental study) and Coleman (1929, The teaching of modern foreign languages in the United States; referred as the Coleman Report in our textbook).
It represents a sharp contrast to the audiolingual method which relys on pattern drills as a means of teaching syntax, without explicit explanation of grammatical rules.
The Eclectic Approach was proposed as a reaction to the profusion of teaching methods in the 1970s and 1980s and the dogmatism often found in the application of these methods.

 Schwickerath: The Method of Teaching in Practice: § I. The Prelection
The method of explaining authors is sketched admirably in the 27th of the common rules.
This method of questioning the pupils about the contents, the ideas of a literary work, was also eminently fitted to stimulate in the pupils self-activity and independent thinking.
Here, however, another mistake must be avoided, which easily creeps into the teaching of the classics, a mistake which was not uncommon in the German schools before the recent reforms, namely, to make the authors the means of studying, repeating, or "drilling" the rules of grammar, etymology, and syntax.

 The Legacy of R. L. Moore - Comments on Moore-Method Teaching -- Mike Reed
Finally, I discovered that it was possible to have freedom in the teaching of either the very smart (i.e., honors programs) or the "considered-to-be" very dumb (i.e., education and business students).
My conclusions are that Moore-method teaching must be adapted to (1) the nature of the institution, (2) the culture of the students, and (3) the personality of the teacher.
The bottom line is that Moore-method teaching from Socrates to Moore to Fitzpatrick is about the ethical responsibility and the joy of intellectual individualism within a community of scholars.

The third teaching method, specifically the one I found to be used most often in American high schools, involved reading aloud in class and then following up this reading with discussions and questions.
When teaching with optimism and enthusiasm, as well as looking for these qualities in the responses of the students, the teacher ensures that the reading and the discussions will be lighthearted and fun for both the students and the teacher (206).
I think this method is most appropriate for my high school level students because it allows them to explore the text in class, and therefore any questions that arise, which I am sure there will be, can be answered at that time.

Rather than lecturing to large or small groups of children, the teacher is trained to teach one child at a time, and to oversee thirty or more children working on a broad array of tasks.
She is facile in the basic lessons of math, language, the arts and sciences, and in guiding a child's research and exploration, capitalizing on his interest in and excitement about a subject.
The Montessori method is philosophically and practically different from other educational methods, and also very different from the personal educational experience of most adults who become Montessori teachers.

 The Socratic Method
It is a very efficient teaching method, because the first time through tends to cover the topic very thoroughly, in terms of their understanding it.
Though, to repeat, this is teaching by stimulating students' thinking in certain focused areas, in order to draw ideas out of them; it is not "teaching" by pushing ideas into students that they may or may not be able to absorb or assimilate.
For the Socratic method to work as a teaching tool and not just as a magic trick to get kids to give right answers with no real understanding, it is crucial that the important questions in the sequence must be logically leading rather than psychologically leading.
