A Lesson Plan on Socrates

This lesson plan on Socrates (as above and below) is the seventh of an eleven-lesson global studies unit on the origins of religion and philosophy. This is a lesson, owing to Socrates’ importance to methods of inquiry (as well as informing my own teaching practice, which is something I wanted students to understand and take away from this lesson), was definitely designed to unfold over at least two days if possible.

I open this lesson with this Cultural Literacy worksheet on the concept of a faction; for the second day of the lesson, here is a context clues worksheet on the noun justice. Here are the reading on Socrates and its accompanying vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet that are the primary work for this lesson. Here, also, is a shorter worksheet that I intended either for a class that struggled with the longer reading, or to use as independent practice (i.e. homework).

If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
