Sample Paideia Seminar Planschildren seated in circle on classroom floor

The NPC has created a collection of hundreds of approved seminar plans that span all grade levels and all subject areas. Full access to this archive is available through a subscription, but we will always offer a select grouping of sample plans available for use free of charge. Our current offerings are organized by grade level as well as a "general" category; please scroll down to download any of these plans from the section at the bottom of the page. Please note that most of our Socratic Seminar plans can be revised to work effectively at multiple grade levels.
