The UGA Department of Philosophy and the UGA Office of Service-Learning are pleased to host a workshop by Tom Wartenberg, a national expert in teaching philosophy to young children. This workshop, "Philosophizing with Children" will demonstrate how Dr. Wartenberg gets elementary school children to engage in philosophical discussions using picture books. Dr. Warternberg will provide an interactive demonstration of his approach and facilitate a philosophical discussion of some of the issues raised by the book. Participants will gain an understanding of the methods used when working with young children.
Dr. Wartenberg was the winner of the 2011 APA/PDC Prize for Excellence and Innovation in Philosophy Programs and the 2013 Merritt Prize for Distinguished Service to the Philosophy of Education. He's the author of Big Ideas for Little Kids: Teaching Philosophy through Children's Literature (Rowman and Littlefield). A PBS documentary about his work is available here - https://video.wgby.org/video/wgby-documentaries-big-ideas-little-kids/
