A Socratic seminar is a specific instructional technique for leading classroom discussions that can be used to enhance an economics course. The focus here is to provide an introduction to the Socratic seminar, including key pedagogical features to demarcate this type of classroom discussion, give an overview of the costs and benefits of this type of instruction, and provide suggested topics for use in an economics classroom.
