Stafford H. Byers is a clergyman, attorney, motivational speaker, law professor and an educational consultant. In addition to his legal training, he also received special training in the Socratic Approach to teaching at Harvard Law School.
The Socratic Approach, teaching by asking questions, creates and fosters an energetic, dynamic and engaging learning environment. It causes shy and timid students to break out of their shell and become more self assured, confident and assertive. It forces teachers to sharpen their skills and innovate, and at the same time enable students to be thoughtful, engaging, and involved in their own learning.
Professor Byers has served as faculty advisor to Texas Southern University’s, Thurgood Marshall Law Review. He has coached teachers in and spoken to administrators about the effectiveness of the Socratic Method.
Through the use of the Socratic Method, Stafford will provide an approach to teaching that focuses on the Webb’s Depth of Knowledge for questioning, and on the Common Core Learning Standards for writing opinion pieces and supporting a point of view with reasons.
This consultation will also provide educators with structures and scaffolded activities for teaching students to write creatively and ground their work with text evidence.
