Intersting. A friend and I were joking around about subjecting kids to the socratic method, but maybe it was not so much a joke. While I doubt it could wrok for someting like history or geogaphy, it might be quite useful for teaching math or some science.

really interesting experiment!

I've used variable interval questioning to keep kids alert and 'processing', myself. It's sort of an elementary synthesis.
