The Socratic Seminars for this course were designed to improve our book and YAL discussions. I appreciated the feedback our classmates gave to each other and also the criticism they gave so, I could improve. Overall, my performance in each of the Socratic Seminars could improve by me participating more and even offering a question of my own. Although, I did make an effort to respond to some of my peers’ questions, I could have said more. The Socratic Seminars have brought to my attention important factors about YAL and it has shaped how I feel about YAL today. I liked how Dr. Adam gave us the talking time and she did not control the conversation.
