Philosophy in the classroom by Matthew Lipman( Book )

20 editions published between 1977 and 2010 in English and held by 840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook for educators and parents discusses the need to include philosophy in the elementary classroom. The authors point out that as a question-raising discipline, philosophy is appropriate to guide children's natural inquisitiveness through the educational process. It encourages intellectual resourcefulness and flexibility which can enable children and teachers alike to cope with the disconnectedness and fragmentization of existing curricula. It can help develop sound reasoning and ethics. The first six chapters discuss reasons for including philosophy in the curriculum, aims and objectives of the philosophy for children program, and methods of teaching and guiding philosophical discussions. The point is made that children frequently are not satisfied with simplified answers to their questions, and that their minds should be trained at an early, receptive age to consider metaphysical, moral, and logical issues. Chapter seven presents an argument for the use of formal and nonformal logic in teaching children to think constructively and learning to make inferences and deductions on their own. In chapter eight, the authors explore the following question: can moral education be divorced from philosophical education? The interrelationship of logic and morality indicates that the answer is no. See so 009 951 for a philosophical reader for junior high students. (Author/AV)
Growing up with philosophy by Matthew Lipman( Book )

13 editions published between 1978 and 1994 in English and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed for the growing field of philosophy and children, this sourcebook is concerned with motivating children to think in ways that will increase the meaningfulness of their lives and, as a consequence, help them see the importance of their own education. The approach entails a reappraisal of the entirety of philosophical literature in search of those parts most useful in teaching philosophical thinking to children, and it is recognized that there is a philosophy for children as well as by children. The thirty one essays are organized in topical sections and provide a foundation for building new learning experiences through philosophy. The first group is an historical selection of works by major philosophers. The relationship between developmental theories and philosophy for children is the theme of the next section, and it is followed by sections on children and moral philosophy, children and aesthetics, and children and ethics. A final section on the role of the teacher in the philosophical education of the child rounds out the anthology. Aspects of philosophical tradition, it is emphasized, must be processed so as to construct a sequential curriculum that would be the basis for exposing children to philosophy. The articles, together with the editor's introductions and the bibliography, attempt to define the state of this relatively new field as well as provide ideas for its advancement. (Ds)
Philosophy goes to school by Matthew Lipman( Book )

10 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in English and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a textbook for teachers that demonstrates how philosophical thinking can be used in teaching children. It begins with the assumption that what is taught in schools is not (and should not be) subject matter but rather ways of thinking. The main point is that the classroom should be converted into a community of inquiry, and that one can begin doing that with children. Based on the curriculum that Matt Lipman has developed at the Institute for the Advancement of Philosophy for Children, which he heads, this book describes the curriculum and explains its use. The text is self-contained, h

Lisa by Matthew Lipman( Book )

84 editions published between 1976 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This instructional manual is designed to accompany "Lisa," a philosophy reader for 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students (ed 137 215). The aim of the course is to encourage children to consider and reflect upon their moral values. Concerned with ethics, "Lisa" is an attempt to understand moral conduct. Emphasis is on having the students learn to think as clearly and logically as possible, show the relevance of such thinking to the problems that confront them, and think in ways which search out fresh alternatives and which open new options. Some of the major philosophical themes in the course include truth, fairness, consistency, free will, naturalness, change and growth, and standards and rules. The manual is divided into 15 chapters, each beginning with "Teaching Ideas." Each idea is then used as the basis for exercises, discussion plans, and activities. The manual includes an index which identifies discussion plans and activities on a given subject. A philosophical content chart is also included, which shows "Lisa" as a follow-up to a study of "Harry Stottlemeier's Discovery." (Author/SH)

Studies in philosophy for children : Harry Stottlemeier's discovery by Ann Sharp( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Harry Stottlemeier's Discovery, created by Matthew Lipman in 1969, is now a widely used tool for teaching philosophy to children. As the original novel of the Philosophy for Children program, its goal is to present major ideas in the history of philosophy, while nurturing children's ability to think for themselves. This collection of essays reflects upon the development, refinement, and maturation of Philosophy for Children and on its relationship to the tradition of philosophy itself. This book is an attempt to improve the practice of Philosophy for Children as it applies to the teaching of Harry Stottlemeier's Discovery to primary school students. This book involves an attempt to answer a question that arises when one tries to move from theory to practice: What must practitioners know in order to translate theoretical claims into action? In the following chapters that question is answered in a variety of ways by philosophers, educators, and practicing teachers. The answers they propose frequently shed as much light on the theory of Philosophy for Children as they do on the practice. Studies in Philosophy for Children is aimed at the teachers who have been trained in Philosophy for Children
