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.
