Philosophy Foundation: Provocations - Philosophy for Secondary School

Philosophy Foundation: Provocations - Philosophy for Secondary School

A new addition to The Philosophy Foundation Series.

Provocations is a set of philosophy sessions designed for secondary school and predicated on the pedagogical methods of The Philosophy Foundation. These sessions are mature, challenging and provocative, using history, literature, myth and the world today as their basis. Each session contains particular pedagogical tips and advice and suggestions as to how they can be effectively delivered.

From the fall of Icarus to the rise of Caesar this practical book draws upon history, philosophy and literature to provoke students to think, question and wonder. Divided into chapters on The World, Self, Society and Others, this resource for secondary school is written to give teachers the means to listen rather than teach, to allow the ideas and thoughts of students to form the centre of the lesson. It raises questions on the nature of evil, belief in God, slavery, consumerism, Utopia, the limits of freedom, and a whole lot more.

The clear introductory outline contains tips and advice on how to use this book both in and outside the classroom and across the curriculum. Applicable to History, Geography, RS, Science, Art, English and Citizenship it offers teachers from all subjects the opportunity to introduce a student-centred approach to their lessons.

This book is ideal for teachers whether they are P4C trained or just experimenting with philosophy. It will help teachers to present ideas and stimulate discussions which both accommodate and engage adolescent appetites.

There is also an extensive bibliography for those who wish to explore the topics in greater depth.

David studied philosophy at St Andrews before joining the Philosophy Foundation in 2011. In addition to his work with the charity, he teaches A-level RS and Philosophy at an independent college in south London. David’s articles on teaching philosophy in schools have appeared in the Guardian Teacher Network, TES and Philosophy Now. He was a contributor to The Philosophy Shop.
