I will be starting a Philosophy Club in school next term and wondered if people have any experience of this? It will be selective as it is to offer an academic activity for the highly able kids and will be for p4 upwards. All thoughts welcome!
I used to run Philosophy4Children sessions in my previous secondary; they were a great introduction to profound thinking and asking interesting questions about any given topic. Google 'P4C', I think there's a website.
We've run P4C on a regular basis for all our primary school children. It is a great program, and certainly not just for the academically able! Teaches thinking skills and a whole range of other life skills, such as listening to others, taking turns, being succinct, arguing another perspective etc... You can take SAPERE qualifications too.
