The Socratic seminar format encourages students to build off their peer’s ideas and arguments, promoting an environment where they are speaking with one another instead of past each other. Students sit in two concentric circles during a Socratic seminar. The inner circle drives the conversation while the outer circle listens and takes notes; they share their ideas and questions only after the inner circle has wrapped up their conversation.

Stacey Roshan

Stacey left her job as an economist to find a profession where she could share her love and passion for math with others. Teaching was the perfect fit. In an effort to maximize the time she had to interact with students in her AP Calculus class, she began flipping her instruction. This quickly opened up the world of technology as an ideal partner in education.

Stacey continues to teach and is also the Upper School's technology coordinator, working with all faculty to identify and implement tech tools to enhance student learning.
