Product Description

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

MY PHILOSOPHY PRODUCTS

I lecture at a university in Canada and teach in the Liberal Education department.  I have also taught at the college level (Montreal - Humanities department) and at a high school in New York City (English and History).  All of my products on TpT are created as part of my teaching portfolio.  

It is imperative that teachers today help their students learn how to learn, to think critically, to analyze data, to problem solve, to communicate clearly, to develop a growth mindset, to be persuasive, and be free thinkers.  All of my philosophy products will help your students achieve these goals. 

All of the following are stand-alone products, yet all of them complement each other.  Some I have bundled together. If you would like to create your own bundle of three products, or more, with a 20% discount, please email me.

The links are below and in the free download!

Thank you for your interest in my products.

MY PHILOSOPHY PRODUCTS

All of the following are stand-alone products, yet all of them complement each other.  Some I have bundled together. If you would like to create your own bundle of three products, or more, with a 20% discount, please email me.

1. SOCRATIC SEMINAR using Plato's Republic (Book I: 327a to 332a)

2. SOCRATIC METHOD - Dialectics: This is a self-contained unit on The Socratic Method or dialectics.

3. HOTS PRODUCTS: All of my HOTS products contain comprehensive teacher notes, vocabulary, review questions, essay questions, a multiple-choice reading test, and 6 to 15 pages of a philosophical text.

4. TEXTUAL ANALYSIS PRODUCTS: Unlike the HOTS products, these products breakdown one paragraph of text and go sentence by sentence with writing prompts.  They also have group and individual questions, essay and discussion questions, and teacher notes.  The main difference is the length of the text. 

5. DILEMMA ONE SHEETS: I have created these DILEMMA ONE SHEETS to help students engage in critical reasoning and to introduce them to philosophy, ethics, law, and justice.  They may be used as homework or class work, individual or group work, and as seminar or debate preparation.  

  • Dilemma #1: Is cannibalism ever morally permissible? Her Majesty The Queen v. Tom Dudley and Edwin Stephens (1884). Key concepts: necessity versus insanity, individual human rights, collective rights, and more. 

  • Dilemma #2: Is killing one child to save another morally permissible?  The England and Wales Court of Appeal (Civil Division) Decisions The Case of the Conjoined Twins (2000). Key concepts: the sanctity of life, lesser of two evils, necessity, and more.

  • Dilemma #3: Should insanity be a defense against first degree murder? United States v. John Hinckley, Jr. (1982)  Key concepts: ethical theories that relate to the Insanity Defense including information on Consequentialism and Deontology.  There is also information on Socrates’ teaching on moral responsibility. 

  • Dilemma #4: To Kill a Mockingbird Are the courts the “great levelers”? Maycomb County v. Tom Robinson (1935).  Key concepts: prejudice, law, justice, morality, and more.

  • Dilemma #5: Is it morally permissible to censor ideas?  Tennessee vs. John Scopes The “Monkey Trial” (1925).  Key concepts: freedom of speech and the collective good, religion versus science, education, censorship, and more.

  • Dilemma #6: Is closure within the purview of law?  The Emmett Till case - The State of Mississippi vs. J. W. Milam and Roy Bryant (1955). Key concepts: Hannah Arendt’s theories on the banality of evil, hate crime legislation, the civil rights movement, and more.

There are several more DILEMMA ONE SHEETS in progress – up next is the Michelle Carter case.

6. PHILOSOPHY BITES: The idea behind these products is to introduce students to “nuggets” of philosophy - one sentence or two.  The idea stems from the following quotation by Virginia Woolf:

“I should never be able to fulfill what is, I understand, the first duty of a lecturer – to hand you after an hour's discourse a nugget of pure truth to wrap up between the pages of your notebooks and keep on the mantelpiece forever.”  There are several more PHILOSOPHY BITES in progress – forthcoming thinkers are: Hobbes, Rousseau, Tocqueville, and Aristotle. 

7. IT’S THE QUESTION AND IT’S THE ANSWER: IT'S THE QUESTION is about formulating a question that relates to both a small excerpt of philosophy and a novel or screenplay, and then creating a visual representation of the question.  IT’S THE ANSWER asks students to answer their questions. This idea could be used for any novel.

There are several more of these products in progress – forthcoming thinkers are: Socrates and Nietzsche.

8. LECTURE SERIES: My success with Visual Notetaking has absolutely changed my teaching style.  I have noticed, however, colleagues that attempt to recreate the VNT in their classes are not always so successful.  The reason I surmise, through conversations, is that the text they are teaching is not visually engaging. I have decided to create a series of lectures on famous sections of philosophical texts.  Have your students engage in philosophical questions regarding justice, truth, knowledge, tyranny, and more. My lecture series work with my VNT products but may also be used on their own.

There are several more of these products in progress – forthcoming lectures will be on: Plato’s Apology, Nietzsche’s Zarathustra, and Pericles’ Funeral Oration

9. VNT: The purpose of this product is to provide the material to those interested in a more difficult reading but one that is still manageable.  The results for my VNT on the Platonic dialogues have been so successful that I wanted to share the material and provide enough information that those not familiar with the dialogue could still use it with success. These products include pages from philosophy and examples but not MANY PEOPLE HAVE PURCHASED MY VNT PRODUCT, SO I DID NOT INCLUDE THE VNT (rubric) INFORMATION HERE.  THIS IS A SUPPLEMENT TO THE ORIGINAL PRODUCT.

There are several more of these products in progress – forthcoming lectures will be on: Plato’s Apology, Nietzsche’s Zarathustra, and Pericles’ Funeral Oration
