Philosophy for Children. In this seminar, students explore various methods for introducing philosophy to K-12 students. The seminar focuses on ways in which to establish "communities of philosophical inquiry" in classrooms, and students will develop an understanding of how to inspire philosophical discussions with pre-college students.
