Bush, Kirsten S. B. – Educational Perspectives, 2019
It is well argued by many educational theorists that modernist views on education have kept schools in the United States similar to those of one hundred years ago when Dewey (1916) advocated for more democratic views of education. Dewey (1916) warned against the hierarchical structures in education, describing how information to be learned in…

Toyoda, Mitsuyo – Educational Perspectives, 2012
The author's first impression of the philosophy for children program in Hawai'i (p4c) was a strong, intuitive feeling that this approach to education can be a vehicle to change the world. This feeling has not faded at all in the course of her five-year commitment to p4c. Yet, as the author has exchanged her ideas about p4c with teachers and…

Ikeda, Jolyn – Educational Perspectives, 2012
In 2001, Dr. Thomas Jackson, or Dr. J as the author and her colleagues affectionately call him, spoke to the faculty at Waikiki Elementary. He described philosophy for children (p4c) Hawai'i and encouraged them to try P4C if something about it "resonated" with them. In the beginning, Dr. J held a p4t (philosophy for teachers)…

Kim, Angela – Educational Perspectives, 2012
When the author was first introduced to philosophy for children (p4c) Hawai'i, it made her cringe. She wasn't sure what it was all about, but it reminded her of a miserable past experience of sitting in a circle. Sitting in circles is the sort of activity that she tries to avoid in life. She was told that Dr. Thomas Jackson, aka Dr. J, would guide…

The author was involved in philosophy for children (p4c) Hawai'i for many years during her graduate studies.

Lukey, Benjamin – Educational Perspectives, 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…

Lukey, Benjamin – Educational Perspectives, 2012
Ever since Thomas Jackson introduced philosophy for children (p4c) to Hawai'i in the mid-1980s, one of the defining characteristics of his p4c Hawai'i program has been its commitment to working with classroom teachers in Hawai'i's public schools. Part of the program's mission has been to find every way possible to support these teachers, both in…

Jones, Tammy – Educational Perspectives, 2012
NCLB has created a climate where teachers feel increasingly pressured to ensure their students pass the test, with the result that they allocate less time for purposeful and authentic learning experiences (Kohn, 2004). Thus, rote memorization is favored over inquiry. Teachers must aim to create a classroom environment that recognizes and values…

Parkes, Graham – Educational Perspectives, 2009
Over the past several decades film and video have been steadily infiltrating the philosophy curriculum at colleges and universities. Traditionally, teachers of philosophy have not made much use of "audiovisual aids" in the classroom beyond the chalk board or overhead projector, with only the more adventurous playing audiotapes, for example, or…

Pronouns take the place of other nouns. In the case of personal pronouns, they often take the place of nouns that identify persons. The pronoun highlights the difference by being formed differently, and by being placed in different spots in the sentences. Pronouns point out the differences as they change form, and vary their representational…

Stepanek, Michael – Educational Perspectives, 1977
In exploring the educational aspects of a 19th-century American commune--the Oneida Community--the author found a peculiar and important role for women which does not seem to have occurred in other experimental lifestyles, much less the society-at-large. (Editor/RK)
