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 the Common Core curriculum, improving students’ reading, speaking and listening, and writing skills.

Paideia offers two kinds of professional development for teachers. Join a training event or arrange on-site training at 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 Common Core standards. Learn more.
