Philosothon 2017

September 6 @ 4:30pm - 6:30pm

All participants, guests, teachers and parents will gather for light refreshments, introductions and an outline of the format at 4:30 PM. Philosothon will be finished by 6:30 PM.

Why a Philosothon?

Philosothons promote critical thinking, creative thinking and collaboration skills. Philosothons are different to debates in that students can agree with each other and the ultimate aim is for a group of students to build a collective response to a complex ethical or philosophical issue or problem. There are often cross curricular links and students who might struggle with written expression find philosothons a wonderful way to help them develop skills that are an asset to any working environment.  http://www.philosothon.org/
