Philosophy for learners

I’m still wondering how exactly I’m going to impose and enforce all these social distancing rules in the classroom – but isn’t it a great opportunity to have a good heart-to-heart talk about helping people in need, social responsibility, ethics and all that? This article gave me quite a few ideas (and there are useful links inside to philosophy lesson plans for children and to videos that can be used with adults). You can dig deeper and read about ethics of care, virtuous adversariality and discuss these concepts with upper secondaries. After all, we’re teaching the whole person, aren’t we?
