...is there any value to using Socratic dialogues with younger students (fifth grade)? Do students this young possess the ability (or the attention span) to sit through an extended discussion?
While I have never conducted a Socratic dialogue, I am interested in doing a few with my classes this coming school year. How does one go about doing this? From what I have read, it sounds a lot like inquiry-based learning, except that the inquiry is done completely through discussion, not through actual experimentation. Is this correct?
