Costello AP Lit Death of a Salesman Socratic Seminar – Thursday, March 8, 2012 A few reminders about the format: Comments should only use one example of support. Avoid rattling off “laundry lists” of examples that may take comments out of others’ mouths. Affirm those comments you agree with by supporting them with further evidence. Support your own view without degrading another point of view. o At the same time, don’t let factual inaccuracies go without correction. If you’ve attained the required number of comments, please allow others “1st dibs” on questions. I am requiring a minimum of 2 comments per participant (40-minute class period) Comments will be assessed as follows: o an A comment (10 pts.) makes comment that uses specific example from text makes comment that draws new conclusion about text based on others comments makes comment that connects to specific example from another text, other subjects, the real world, history, etc. o a B comment (8 pts.) makes a new or insightful comment, without specific example from text, other texts, other subjects, the real world, history, etc. poses a new question to the seminar o a Z (zero) comment makes irrelevant, obstructive, redundant comment fails to comment o a T comment (deletes your best comment) any inattentive behavior o After the seminar is over, your two highest comments will be used to calculate your score.
