Dear Diane,
The resources I mentioned are especially appropriate for educators of young
children. Please read Gareth matthews book Philosophy and the Young Child. It
is a very short but important work. Also did you know that on the East coast
many elementary schools have a philosophy class. There is a very prominent
Institute in New Jersey called the Institute for the Advancement of Philosophy
for Children. I would hope that we can continue our conversation but please
check out the resources first and then tell me what you think. The push for
Aethetics in the classroom is really very appropriate. I am teaching an
aesthetics class this summer to grades 5-7 called Reflections on Art. If you
are interested I can keep you posted on my proposed activities (spring - summer)
and end result (August).
