Professional Development for Teachers

unnamedBecome a great Socratic Seminar teacher!

Paideia teachers change lives by teaching students how to think critically and creatively. The Paideia approach integrates Socratic Seminar into current state standards, improving students’ reading, speaking and listening, and writing skills.

Paideia offers two kinds of professional development for teachers. Join a training event (see our current schedule below) or arrange on-site training at your school.

Bring a Paideia training to your school

We’ll come to you! We offer on-site professional development for teachers that is customized to your school’s goals and needs. On-site training is a cost-effective way to invest in multiple teachers—or your whole faculty. On-site training can result in school-wide improvements, re-energized teachers, newly motivated students, and increased success meeting state standards. Learn more.
