Philosophy for Children
Thinking TogetherStreaming Video - 2009
In a philosophy-for-children session, a teacher uses a story, picture, news item, or piece of music to stimulate critical thinking and imagination. Children are encouraged to express themselves, to challenge what is being said, and to ask questions that intrigue them. This program explores the concept and supporting methodology of P4C at Gallions Primary School in East London, where such sessions have had a strikingly positive impact on children's intellectual, emotional, and social development. "It's changed the way I teach, it's changed the way the children are, it's changed the way the school is run. I think we owe it to the children to run philosophical enquiry," says Lisa Naylor, an advanced skills teacher at Gallions.
