Teaching Children Philosophy 

Teaching Children Philosophy is a website intended to help adults conduct philosophical discussions with and among elementary school children.

Teaching Children Philosophy 1

At Teaching Children Philosophy you’ll find:

  • Book modules for a range of children’s books that include short introductions to the philosophical issues raised by each book and discussion-starter questions to ask children.
  • More resources about having a philosophical discussion with young children, including links to pages for educators, parents, and kids, an interview with Tom Wartenberg, and news about his recent books.

The Sample Courses page can help you set up your own eight week philosophy course using the book modules. Three sample syllabi are presented: a general introduction to philosophy, one focused on ethics, and one that includes books that address issues about knowledge and reality.

Teaching Children Philosophy contains all the materials that you need to lead philosophy discussions with your students.
