What Are You Wondering Now? Advanced Philosophy for Children (P4C)

Five- to seven-year-olds will have fun exploring big questions and learning important critical thinking skills through games, art, stories, and more. This class is for learners who already know how to ask questions and give reasons.

I was a Philosophy major in college, served as a teaching assistant for Logic 100 for 3 years in a row, and have taught Philosophy for Children since 2012. I have a Master of Arts in Teaching, completed an Advanced Practice Philosophy for Children course, and work full time at a primary school that is known nationally for its Philosophy for Children program. 
For some sessions, learners will need paper and a pencil. They may use coloured pencils or markers, but this is not required. 
Children will self-assess how we did as a group at accomplishing our goals for each session. I will provide individualised feedback on your child's progress and next steps. 
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Some families may find some of the topics controversial. I will not be censoring children's discussions or telling children what to believe about particular ethical questions. However there will be zero tolerance for hateful speech including racism, homophobia, transphobia, classism, or sexism.
