What’s the point, Miss?
Mr Cade’s 7X1 P4L class found themselves helping a Plymouth University student with the research needed for her MA this week. Roz Birch, previously a Citizenship teacher here at Eggbuckland, is currently completing an MA in Education. Her research project title – ‘What’s the point, Miss? Can Philosophy for Children inspire hope?’ aims to explore how young people, through the processes of philosophical discussion, relate to current global issues and whether this impacts on their sense of hope for the future.
The first session took place this week and students were introduced to the significance of asking questions; what makes a question a good question?
The next session will be in a fortnight’s time so watch this space.
