This presentation looks comprehensively at assessing Plato through activities.
First is a head-to-head activity. Students are put in teams and they attempt to give a critical point for the statement used (as though they were writing an exam answer). Then the other teams try to challenge the first team’s ideas by either strengthening or weakening the idea given. The second activity is a silent debate. This is when each team is given an A3 sheet with a question in the middle ( for example “Plato does not value experience enough. Discuss”). Each team member then attempts to write a critical point about the statement. They can begin a new thread or they can support/challenge what someone else has written.
