Paideia: Active Learning

Paideia is a pedagogical method that centers on Socratic seminars, or group discussions with open-ended questions. On this website from the National Paideia Center, educators can learn more about the Paideia method and download lesson plans for both K-12 students and adult learners. As of this write up, this website includes over 70 lesson plans, which teachers can browse by subject (Art, English and Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies) or by grade level. While some lesson plans require a paid subscription, many can be accessed by creating a free account. Lesson plans, along with accompanying classroom readings and resources, can be easily downloaded in PDF format. Lesson topics range from the Gettysburg Address to the Periodic Table of Elements to the book, Where the Wild Things Are. Interested teachers may also sign up to receive a free newsletter from the organization.
