English II Honors English teacher Melissa Robon loves putting her advanced English sophomores through their paces as they participate in a Socratic Seminar about Ray Bradbury’s classic “Fahrenheit 451.” Robon said the Socratic seminar helps students formulate ideas, opinions and questions about the reading material.
