Cultivating Students’ Philosophical Thinking

Webinar Leader

Dr. Jana Mohr Lone

Director, University of Washington Center for Philosophy for Children

Webinar Details

This interactive webinar will explore how introducing philosophy in the classroom can enrich student learning, and will provide ideas and resources for encouraging deep and well-reasoned thinking about some of life's “big questions.” Participants will learn about some of the methods of pre-college philosophy, and will engage in philosophical discussions and activities on topics such as: “What can we know? What makes something right or wrong? Are we free? What is a mind? How do we define happiness?”
