Discussion, firstly encouraging students to find their own meaning in the story. 5. Lessons...
- To get used to using Critical Thinking Skills, and viewing problems from multiple angles. - Some brief Ancient Greek History. - What a Philosopher is and who Plato was. - That Philosophy is fun, and useful!
-MSc Psychology (Dissertation on Mindfulness). -BA History & Philosophy
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
- The original Allegory of a Cave, involves persons imprisoned in a cave, and some violence between said prisoners. This will be left out of my retelling of the allegory, I don't believe leaving this out affects the philosophical truths that Plato's the Cave sheds light on!
