  • Take out your Do Now sheet and answer the following, “What is humanism and how is it central to the Renaissance?” (3 minutes)
  • Pick up the Socrates reading (Fighting the Status Quo) and story notes page from the table in front.  Work to complete the notes from the reading (20 minutes).
  • Watch the presentation on Socratic Dialogue.  Ask questions as necessary. (20 minutes)
  • Socratic dialogue over the Medici. (40 minutes)

The first Socratic Dialogue had its rocky moments, but you all definitely showed some promise.  I especially liked how almost everyone contributed in the first circle, and the clarifying question asked about Savonarola near the end of the second circle.
