Philosophy Camp

In this four week course, young learners use philosophy to start thinking about ideas differently, to help them understand how to ask questions, and to sharpen their critical eye.

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
The subject of philosophy is one that can be studied in conjunction with many other topics.  I have formal education in philosophy, political philosophy, ideas and methods, ethics, and all of the selected philosophers for this course.  I have experience teaching from a philosophical perspective, and using strategies to encourage higher order thinking skills to learners in multiple age groups.  
Students are required to complete readings from each philosopher prior to each class.  
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
2 hours per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
There are sometimes controversial subjects that come up in the course of class discussions.  These conversations will be mature and unbiased, and also without judgment for any point of view for the students.  All students understand from the beginning of my classes that it is a safe place for everyone, and that there are productive ways to disagree with others.
We will refer to online resources or downloadable resources for the readings during this class.
