Conversations With Socrates

In social studies, students were able to have a “conversation with Socrates” through the use of a prerecorded voice recording of Socrates.  The voice recording was put into their social studies folder in Showbie*.  All the 6th graders were able to access the voice recording through Showbie.  Students were then able to create their own responses to the thought-provoking questions from Socrates.  The next step was to record their answers to make a conversation.

Step 1 – Listen to the Socrates recording located in Showbie

Step 2 – Record your responses in Garage Band, iMovie, or QuickVoice

Step 3 – Import recordings into Garage Band or iMovie

Step 4 – Create a new project, splice, and combine the recordings to make a conversation

Step 5 – Be sure to save your project

*Showbie is a wonderful tool to help make your classroom paperless.  It can help to get materials to all students, groups of students, or even individuals.
