Socratic teaching and learning is at the core of the Expanse experience. We believe that with engaging readings, students learn about a range of concepts, think deeply and challenge each other in debate. We mean it – so much so that every Saturday afternoon, the Expanse team meets to discuss and debate a reading assignment of its own, selected by none other than founder Michael Strong. So whether we’re discussing Jomo Kenyatta, James Carse or Aristotle, our Socratic Saturdays add a sense of needed perspective, especially during the winter months.
Contact us if you’d like to receive an invitation to these conversations, and we’ll add you to our guest list. The conversations take place 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Central time. Readings are usually sent out a week in advance. There is no requirement to attend regularly, but we welcome those who do choose to join us.
