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 purchasing a subscription. A selection of sample plans from the Collection are always available for download on our website.

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. 

Individual Access

Beginning in 2019, we now offer individual access in the following ways:

  1. If an individual wants to subscribe to our Seminar Plan Collection, he or she may do so at the link below. The $35 cost includes access to the plans for one year, at which time the subscription can be renewed.
  2. 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 $35 per year. 

Group Access

Group access is provided in two ways:

  1. 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.
  2. A group of educators from a school that is not in a current contractual relationship with the NPC may receive a small group discount. Please contact us to discuss access.
