Stanford Report, July 24, 2002 Kids revel in deep questions posed by Philosophy Institute BY LISA TREI Before Heather Guibert arrived on campus, she thought of philosophy as the purview of "old men with beards, walking around and talking about the sun." But after spending three weeks at the Philosophy Discovery Institute, a residential summer program for high school students, Guibert concluded that the subject can be applied practically and that it has taught her to think more clearly. "I want to build spaceships," said the 17-year-old from West Palm Beach, Fla. "In order to do that, you have to think about everything that could possibly go wrong. It's really the philosophical thought process that helps you determine how to do that." From left, Jessica Travis, Lee Reitrelman, Joel Cretan, Whitney King (speaking) and Jake Haskell took part in a debating exercise at the Philosophy Institute, a summer program for high school students.

Have you ever wondered about learning , or for that matter how we decide upon a method or style of teaching for young children? History reflects many educational ideas some concepts very different from others, yet many theories have been built upon earlier educationalists and philosophers works. Our current educationalists often reflect the refinement of some of the earlier works of educational thinkers. The following discussion aims to show that the philosophies held by Kids Campus are backed by many years of research, by many people looking and thinking about how young children learn and how best to facilitate that learning. 1. Our vision of the child and how they learn. Our belief about children and how they learn stems from work began very early in history with Plato, who considered that the " truth about things that really matter cannot be obtained ready made 1 . That is, we can not just hand down answers to children. He suggested that it is necessary for the individual to find their own answers, to discuss, to think. To bounce ideas around gathering opinions and eventually though this process develop convictions within the self. Such thinking was further developed in the work of Dewey , who also suggested that "

" You must be the change you wish to see in the world. "
Mahatma Gandhi Philosophy home about us mission statement purpose philosophy justification selection criteria roles and responsibilities b ... comments Early Intervention The Carnegie Council on Adolescent Development in its report Great Transitions; Preparing Adolescents For A New Century suggests that “A crucial need for adolescents is for an enduring, stable and supportive bond with a caring adult.” Carnegie places emphasis on youth between the ages of ten and fourteen and suggests that this time frame may be the best opportunity for providing intervention. This program is consequently focused on identifying students in the fifth grade. In collaborating with these students and their families, the students and families will realize that they can reach goals that might otherwise be unattainable due to socio-economic factors. Each student will be assigned a mentor whose primary role is to guide that student to academic and social success thus fulfilling the required criteria to qualify for a post-secondary school scholarship. Mentoring : Public/Private Ventures, a public policy monitoring organization, suggests “Mentors can make a significant difference in children’s lives. Evaluation results provide clear evidence that involvement in programmatically created relationships with a caring adult can yield a wide range of tangible benefits with youth.” Mentoring serves as the chief cornerstone of the AQFK program. After a caring adult is screened and receives six hours of training, he or she meets with their mentee for approximately one hour per week. Through mentoring our students are provided a “guide on the side”, a positive role model, a support person who believes that that child is special, and has high expectations for that special child’s achievements. Mentors also serve as the anchor for our program as they are the connectors – they link our program to the children’s classroom and parents.

The winner of the Kids' Philosophy Slam has been announced, an essay contest in which students all write about the same topic. This year it was "Is Human Nature Good or Evil?" Congratulations to Vineetha Joseph who beat out 4,000 students from first grade to high school senior. I was one of the judges and have some advice for next year's entrants. It's really very simple and it's guaranteed to boost the grades on your term papers by at least 1.5 grades: Don't ever answer the question directly. Always answer a meta-question. "The question isn't whether human nature is good or bad. The real question is: What is human nature?" "The question isn't whether the Civil War was caused by economic or social forces. The question is what it means for a large-scale human event such as a war to be 'caused'." "The question isn't what Jay Gatsby's fatal flaw was. The question is what sorts of creatures we human beings are if we can be flawed or not." Note: For philosophy courses, go up two levels of meta-question. It's just that simple. Posted by D.

  • Next message: Todd Osborne: "Re: clay question listserve address" Find out what the philosophy of the school is. For example, some schools
    are progressive, team teaching, open classes, etc. Other school are more
    conservative. Some schools value the economic-materialistic side of life,
    ie, strong science dept, math dept,= good for the economy Other schools are
    more humanistic, value and money spent on the arts, theater, etc.= good for
    living with others in harmony.
    Find out the discipline philosophy, ie, kids need to be punished,
    detention, or kids need to be sent to the school psychologist. Then, see
    how you fit in. If your thinking should match that of the school you want
    to work in. When you figure this out, write a philosophy statement expressing how you feel about the above items. Administration is usually not very interested in all that educational philosophy stuff, they want to

    All questions are being answered by kids 5-10 WHAT IS THE PROPER AGE TO GET MARRIED "Eighty-four! Because at that age, you don't have to work anymore, and you can spend all your time loving each other in your bedroom." (Judy, 8) "Once I'm done with kindergarten, I'm going to find me a wife!" (Tom, 5) WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE "On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date." (Mike, 10) WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE "You should never kiss a girl unless you have enough bucks to buy her a big ring and her own VCR, 'cause she'll want to have videos of the wedding." (Jim, 10) "Never kiss in front of other people. It's a big embarrassing thing if anybody sees you. But if nobody sees you, I might be willing to try it with a handsome boy, but just for a few hours." (Kally, 9) THE GREAT DEBATE: IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED "It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need somebody to clean up after them!" (Lynette, 9) "It gives me a headache to think about that stuff. I'm just a kid. I don't need that kind of trouble." (Kenny, 7)

    I want children to smile. It they are smiling, they will be relaxed. If they are relaxed they will be confident. If they are confident
    "I want children to smile.
    It they are smiling, they will be relaxed.
    If they are relaxed they will be confident.
    If they are confident, they will dare to be curious.
    If they are curious, they will grow in understanding."
    Anne Wood, Co-Creator of Teletubbies and Creative Director, Ragdoll
    Teletubbies is crafted with the understanding that little children watch television in a radically different way than older children and grown-ups. The program makes liberal use of repetition, large movement, bright colors and deliberate pace to nurture the development of imagination, thinking and listening skills. The stories are structured so that the child is able to stay one step ahead of the Teletubbies, encouraging emerging abilities of prediction and visualization and, most vitally, developing confidence and self-esteem.
    Extensive research, including the use of ongoing focus groups, has guided the development of the series.
    Teletubbies provides a new generation of television viewers - the youngest and most impressionable - with the opportunity to feel safe in and enjoy the ever-changing world. This unique series is designed to recognize and provide programming for an audience that truly deserves something very carefully developed.
    Here are some ways Teletubbies enriches the learning experiences of young children
  • Uses Comedy to Stimulate Thinking
  • When a child laughs at Teletubbies, you can be sure that he or she is following the story and, more importantly, making sense of what is happening on-screen.
