1984
Socratic Seminar Assignment

MY “PART”: Book Three MY DUE DATE: March 8, 2012

For this assignment, each student will be responsible for selecting a quote from an assigned “part” of 1984 to be discussed during our Socratic seminar. In other words, the class will be divided into three groups, and each group will be assigned to one of the three parts.

For this assignment, you must include the following:
  • A significant quote located in the text of your assigned part.
  • A typed detailed explanation of why you chose that quote and what you feel is the importance of your chosen quote.
  • THIS SHOULD BE MORE IN DEPTH THAN A NORMAL JOURNAL ENTRY. YOUR DICUSSION SHOULD BE WRITTEN BETWEEN 100-300 WORDS.
  • During our Socratic seminar, you will present your quote and share why you believe it is critical to our understanding of 1984. You will then lead a discussion with your classmates about your quote.

To share and/or discuss the quote you have selected, click on the discussion link at the top of the page. Remember: Each group member must present a different quote.
