Philosophical chairs allow students to take a stance on a topic in a non-confrontational manner. This year long activity helps students develop critical thinking and research skills, while learning how to communicate their opinions in a socially acceptable way.
This activity doesn't just teach students skills that can only be used in academia, but skills they can use as adults.
This resource includes:
