One of the area that I have improved on from the last formative socratic seminar is that I was able to effectively build on others’ ideas to construct my claim. Throughout the seminar, I politely disagreed to some people’s arguments while connecting that to build my claim to further develop the conversation. Also, I have improved in participating in the seminar. For example, I asked questions in relation to the theme of the book, which lead an interesting discussion topic. Finally, I have improved on utilizing my Cornell notes. I built my claims upon the notes as evidence, which strongly supported my claim.
However I think I could improve on the analysis part of the seminar. Next time, I would discuss about the literary elements of the book to bring the seminar into a deeper level. The analysis would be important in order to understand specific parts of the book.
