Description

Class Experience

The following reasoning skills	will be developed:	
Deductive reasoning, inductive reasoning, sequential reasoning, analogical reasoning,
drawing inferences,	coming to conclusions,	
use of evidence, focused inquiry,	
making sense of phenomena,	and	
being able to see the "big picture".
I have been a student of philosophy for most of my life. I studied for 4 years a student of Matt Lipman whose teachings this class is based on. I have taught philosophy for children for over 10 years with local homeschool groups.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Philosophy by its very nature raises questions. This course will challenge the students to question everything they think they know. This can lead to uncomfortable conversations within a family structure.
The Book Kio & Gus by Matt Lipman. Teacher will provide pdfs of relevant chapters.
