Teaching elementary-aged homeschoolers with the Socratic method is the ideal way for them to be practiced in logical, reasonable thinking. Great thinkers of the world have used the Socratic method for centuries as a way to think about great things. Elementary-aged students need to learn to think Socratically now more than ever. In public school, over 95% of the study questions kids have in school require them to think with recall skills, the lowest possible thinking level. Thinking outside the box is no longer a phrase used in schools. Thinking with reason and logic will help them to stand above the rest of the kids out there. This resource helps with understanding that Socratic dialogue and it’s high thinking structure equips kids with the thinking skills they need to excel in life
