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 with Rich Piscopo, a student of Matt Lipman whose teachings this class is based on.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
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.
