CHS students lead Socratic seminar

Campbellsville High School students recently led a Socratic seminar in their AP English language class.

 

In Andrea Lawler’s class, students read the poem Half-Hanged Mary by Margaret Atwood.

 

They also spent several days reviewing non-fiction texts about the Salem Witch trials and McCarthy hearings.

 

Students spent time annotating to prepare for a student-led discussion about what they read.

 

Lawler’s students gathered in a circle for the discussion, and had to make connections between the texts and poem they read, along with discussing the poem’s meaning and purpose.
