Product description


This book gets students 'doing' philosophy: actively engaging with it by getting involved in entertaining games and discussions. It's no wonder that philosophy is so good at helping students progress in all areas of the curriculum. I am pretty sure that if teachers only implemented a few of the strategies in Peter Worley's book, they'd quickly raise the levels of achievement amongst their students. --Francis Gilbert, author of I'm a Teacher, Get Me Out Of Here, former teacher and lecturer at Goldsmiths, Univeristy of London. www. francisgilbert.co.uk
