Children as Philosophers
This accessible book balances an exploration of the theoretical and critical considerations of using philosophy in the class room with real examples of children working as philosophers. Based on research by Joanna Haynes at a primary school and full of practical suggestions for teachers, this book demonstrates that, from a young age, children are capable of engaging in a sophisticated process of dialogue and enquiry, and argues that they should have space and time to do so.
This book is an ideal starting point for teachers interested in bringing philosophy into their classroom. It is full of useful ideas for sparking off philosophical discussions, and includes helpful resources and contacts.
