Today's Socratic Seminar will focus on the use of windmills (wind turbines) in communities to generate electricity. We'll read 4 articles and use evidence from these readings to inform our discussion. Our essential question is:
How do windmills impact communities in both positive and negative ways?
Students are encouraged to cite direct passages from the readings. It's very helpful to point out the source and paragraph that you are citing.
Directions: As you read the following 4 articles, please do the following:
- ANNOTATE: Annotate the text (make notes in the columns).
- KEY PASSAGES: Highlight, circle or underline passages that you will use in the conversation.
- QUESTIONS: Write questions that the articles spark.
- CONNECTIONS:Write connections you make between the articles and other topics.
