"All the problems of the world could be settled easily if men were only willing to think. The trouble is that men very often resort to all sorts of devices in order not to think, because thinking is such hard work."   (Thomas Watson, IBM)

A nice article with some important principles for Socratic seminar. One of them, "Avoid doing all the work for them," is a key component to any seminar experience. This often takes the form of "gradual release of responsibility," since students need to be taught skills first before they get a chance to practice.

Sharrock's curator insight, March 22, 7:57 PM

This type of strategic leadership requires five different types of thinking. Knowing when and how much to utilize each one is the hallmark of great leaders.

Critical thinking is the mental process of objectively analyzing a situation by gathering information from all possible sources, and then evaluating both the tangible and intangible aspects, as well as the implications of any course of action.Implementation thinking is the ability to organize ideas and plans in a way that they will be effectively carried out.Conceptual thinking consists of the ability to find connections or patterns between abstract ideas and then piece them together to form a complete picture.Innovative thinking involves generating new ideas or new ways of approaching things to create possibilities and opportunities.Intuitive thinking is the ability to take what you may sense or perceive to be true and, without knowledge or evidence, appropriately factor it in to the final decision.
