Latest issue of Teaching Philosophy: philosophy in high schools

The latest issue of Teaching Philosophy is available electronically. It's a very special issue: Guest edited by Mitch Green and Jana Mohr Lone, it focuses on teaching philosophy in high schools. Those of you engaged in high school philosophy teaching will, I hope, find valuable advice in these articles. Those of us working at the college and university level should gain a new appreciation of the challenges and rewards of working with this population. Do check it out!

  1. As a high school student, I find that a lot of philosophy is taught in English class. It is not a conventional style of teaching it though, but rather a "read this book, and find deeper meanings." A major focus is put on writing good persuasive essays, and that seems to be a major focus in philosophy. Sometimes you do end up a philosophical minority though.
