Philosophy for Children in Hawaii: A Community Circle Discussion
Lukey, Benjamin
Educational Perspectives, v44 n1-2 p32-37 2012
In spite of the many different "flavors" of philosophy for children (p4c) Hawai'i, one undeviating element involves the creation of a community for intellectually safe philosophical inquiry. The first step in this process is usually an activity in which the participants work together to fashion a "community ball". It's a process that Thomas Jackson teaches in his PHIL 492 course. In this article, teachers and p4c facilitators share how they created a community ball or community circle. (Contains 1 endnote.)
