Welcome back to school! I have updated my schedule for September and October. Each week I will present on a unique philosophical topic and then have the students discuss the topic of the week. We will cover topics including current events, logic, ethics, history of philosophy, debate, fallacies, and more. My primary teaching method uses PowerPoint slides along with questions meant to encourage engagement from the students. I also ask that the students come up with their own arguments in order...
This class is taught in English.
BA and MA in philosophy. Experience teaching at a college level and with children of ages 4-14.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
In my ongoing class I teach not just logic, but also history of philosophy and ethics. In my classes we will have open discussions about topics like death, the mind, politics, and unethical acts like stealing and killing (for example, discussing the ethics of killing animals vs killing humans). We discuss these topics so that we can understand them better logically and so that we can understand many different perspectives that different people might have on each topic. I do not expect or demand that any student believe or agree with any particular view on these topics. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns about topics discussed in class and I will make sure to adjust my class accordingly.
