If your group consists of 10-14 students, you can work as a whole group. If your students’ number is more than 15, you need to make two groups for speaking. Beforehand study the rules for Socrates seminar with your learners. Learners work as a whole class. Learners sit in a circle. Questions for discussion can be handed in advance to learners to have a look and think them over. This set of questions is not compulsory. Feel free to include class-discussed questions. No need to discuss all the suggested questions. Make notes in order to assess your learners and provide effective feedback later.
Work as a whole class or small groups. Choose any question you want to discuss with your peers. Start your speech. Mind the rules for Socratic seminars. Explain and justify your answers.
Rules for Socratic seminar Treat one another respectfully. This is a shared talk, NOT a debate. Everyone needs to talk AND listen. Do NOT talk over one another. Do not raise hands. You can agree or disagree with the speaker on any points you want. Address each other and NOT your teacher. Ask questions. Before asking, “What do you think about it?” tell your own opinion. Be courageous in presenting your own thoughts and reasoning, but be flexible and willing to change your mind in the face of new and compelling evidence.
Questions for discussion: How many types of natural disaster can you name? Which is the worst? What natural disasters are common in your country? What is the best / worst natural disaster movie you have seen? Think of three natural disasters. What can you do to stay safe during and after these natural disasters? What is a difference between a hurricane, a typhoon, and a cyclone? Which country has the most natural disasters? Would you ever volunteer to help after a natural disaster hit? If yes, what would you like to volunteer to do? If no, why not? How can technology lessen the damage caused by natural disasters? What is your favourite science subject? Biology? Physics? Chemistry? Why? How will science change the world in the next 100 years? Do you like science? What has science done for humankind? What will science uncover in the next few decades? What questions will science never answer? What will the next big discovery in science be? Why do children at school need to study science?
You can use the following phrases: In my opinion/It is not my point of view … I think … In my view … I agree with/do not agree with … I see your point … I support your view … I take a different view …
I know many kinds of natural disaster. Earthquake, volcanic eruption, avalanche, tsunami, forest fire, hail, etc. I can’t choose one of the natural disasters and say that it’s terrible because any of them harm people in their own way. Earthquake and hail are common in my country, and that’s all. The best disaster movie I’ve seen is (IMPOSSIBLE) and the worst is (Tsunami 2012). It’s my opinion.
Now the technology is developing very well. And I think everything will be fine. Colliding with each other, air masses of different temperatures form a low pressure area, which becomes the birthplace of a typhoon or hurricane. Thus, the boundary between these natural phenomena is very thin. With a tsunami, they are united only by high speed. Tsunamis are called long and high waves. In first place among 181 states is the tiny republic of Vanuatu (hazard index — 47.73). Located on the active boundary of tectonic plates, the island lives under the constant threat of earthquakes, tsunamis and typhoons.
I would volunteer to help people after a natural disaster. Because no one knows what might happen to him tomorrow. Natural disaster brings huge damage to technology. My favorite science subject is biology and chemistry. Because I’m interested in studying the human and animal world. Science can change our views on many things. And life can get easier. I really like science. What has science done for mankind?
It plays a certain role for the well-being of society and performs a number of functions: the creation of new knowledge, the improvement of education and the improvement of the quality of life. Science must meet the needs of society and help it cope with global problems. Mathematics in life is important not so much with formulas as with the ability to highlight the main thing, to be able to build models of any processes. Set theory will help you find the best job. A lot of your skills are taken, a lot of interests, then a lot of highly paid jobs. Where these sets intersect, and there will be your golden mean for your success in life. The Pythagorean theorem came in handy for me in the construction and milling of metal-cutting tools with spiral grooves — drills, countersinks. When he invented his own rigidity design for cardboard toy cars, drawing skills came in handy. Mathematics teaches brevity of thinking, the ability to concisely ask a question and concisely answer. Combinatorics will give a quick estimate of the chance of winning the lottery or some other game. That is, mathematics puts the mind in order.
