1. Spiraled-practice (DISTRIBUTED PRACTICE): Practice
3. Socratic Seminars (ELABORATIVE INTERROGATION): Reading with a question in your mind and discussing the deeper meaning of complex text using the Socratic questioning techniques. Socratic questioning is disciplined questioning that can be used to pursue thought in many directions and for many purposes, including: to explore complex ideas, to get to the truth of things, to open up issues and problems, to uncover assumptions, to analyze concepts, to distinguish what we know from what we don't know, to follow out logical implications of thought or to control the discussion. The key to distinguishing Socratic questioning from questioning per se is that Socratic questioning is systematic, disciplined, deep and usually focuses on fundamental concepts, principles, theories, issues or problems.
