SUMMARY

These thought-provoking books offer an innovative program for introducing philosophical thinking, dialogue & activities to children in the first four years of school. Included in this set are four beautifully illustrated stimulus books that can be used either separately by parents or by teachers in conjunction with the teacher's manual. The books - On a Plain, In a Field, In a Tree, & On a Path - combine unique, high-quality children's literature with resources for stimulating inquiry. The teacher's manual examines a range of teaching methods & strategies, including: Rationales for introducing children to philosophy - The importance of specific strategies such as questioning, giving & requesting reasons, & seeing things from a different point of view - An introduction to the concept of a "community of inquiry" & the role of the teacher within it - Using this manual to plan & conduct philosophical lessons with children - Assessing the work of students & the community of inquiry. Teachers will find that this set will be easily incorporated into their English curriculum.Francesca Partridge is the author of 'Places for Thinking (Manual)', published 1998 under ISBN 9780864312877 and ISBN 0864312873.
