Philosophy

I initially trained in the Philosophy for Children or P4C method but more recently attended a two day course run by The Philosophy Foundation because I wanted to focus on using folktales as a stimulus.

Due to this, I now use a closed question/open question approach. This allows the concept under discussion to be present and transparent from the outset, whereas in the P4C method much of the focus is on question creation.

This new approach means that philosophy sessions can be used to discuss concepts in a story that might be relevant in other areas of learning, as well as allowing stories to be chosen because teachers wish to discuss particular concepts.
