Socratic Questioning

Many teachers are puzzled with the encouragement, directive, mandate to bring “student-led” activities to their classroom. Many are equally wary of relinquishing control when migrating from “safe on the stage” to “guide on the side.”

Socratic questioning is one way to adapt to both of these instructional shifts.

This infographic provides a great visual for teachers and students to implement the Socratic method of questioning. It includes 6 sections with sample questions that might be asked:

1. Clarification

2. Probing Assumptions

3. Probing Rationals

4. Questioning Viewpoints

5. Probing Consequences

6. Questions on the Question
