In this seminar, students explore various methods for introducing philosophy to K-12 students. The seminar focuses on ways in which to establish "communities of philosophical inquiry" in classrooms, and students develop an understanding of how to inspire philosophical discussions with pre-college students. The emphasis is on learning by doing, and we will discuss such questions as: Why should I be moral? What is art? Do animals have rights? Students will facilitate philosophy sessions in local public schools. UCARs are available for transportation to and from schools.
UCARs will be available for John Muir Elementary, Adams Elementary & Whittier Elementary. Times are flexible. Contact Jana Mohr Lone if you have questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
