Product Description

Research shows that the study of philosophy propagates the critical thinking and critical reading skills amidst young learners. To this end, this unit of work has been developed and tested to enhance the reading and critical thinking skills of learners in years 8 and 9 (students aged between 13 and 16). A mixture of modern and classical readings, the unit has been specifically developed with teenagers in mind and asks them to critically challenge the certainties they thought they knew.

Enliven your students and give them something that will have them arguing and critiquing beyond the classroom and in to the hallways. Make learning entertaining again.

This unit of work comes with:

Lesson by lesson readings

Self-assessment at the close of each topic

Critical thinking questions embedded throughout

Embedded links to external and supplementary resources and videos

Over the course of trialling this unit of work for 3 years, students averaged an increase of almost 12 months on top of their standardised reading scores - impressive considering the unit of work is only designed for between 11 and 15 lessons.

The unit is also designed to allow students to understand the correct application of task words frequently used in assessment in senior years i.e. Evaluate, analyse etc.
