Paideia Seminar Plan Collection
The National Paideia Center has an extensive collection of hundreds of Socratic Seminar plans for every grade level and in every subject area. It is available to individuals who have received training from us at a recent training event (2018 and beyond) or by participating in our new webinar training. A selection of sample plans from the Collection are always available for download on our website.
The webinar training grants a one year subscription to the Collection, with unlimited access, and can be renewed as many times as desired. Group access is provided to individual educators who are faculty members of schools which are in a current contractual relationship for schoolwide training with the NPC.
Please note that access to the Seminar Lesson Plan Collection is intended for the use of the individual subscriber; any disclosure, reproduction, distribution or other use of the Lesson Plans for an individual or entity other than the intended subscriber is prohibited.
Beginning in 2019, we now offer individual access in the following ways:
- If an individual wants to subscribe to our Seminar Plan Collection, he or she must complete an online training webinar. The $30 cost includes the training webinar and access to the plans for one year; after that year, he or she may renew without having to complete the course again.
- If an individual attends an NPC Institute or Conference, he or she will receive access for one year as a part of the training cost. After that year is up, he or she can renew access for $30 per year. The fee can be offset by using a coupon code that can be applied toward the cost of attending another training event. This enticement is designed to encourage individual teachers to pursue Paideia training beyond the introductory level.
Group access is provided in two ways:
- Group access is provided to individual educators who are faculty members of schools which are in a current contractual relationship for schoolwide training with the NPC. Please consult your Paideia coordinator about access credentials.
- A group of educators from a school that is not in a current contractual relationship with the NPC may pay for access for the group. A group of 10 or less may register through the portal below; payment by credit card is required. For groups of 10 or more, please contact us to discuss access.
