Build learning skills with new Delphi Philosophy resources

Hi everyone,

The new school year here in the UK is fast approaching, and we have some brand-new resources to share with you!

Teaching Delphi Philosophy

Why teach philosophy now?

Teaching philosophy to children is one of the most effective, engaging and cheapest ways of developing children’s learning skills.

Many schools will be looking for ways to rebuild their children’s learning skills following the disruption of the last couple of years. Teaching philosophy to children is a fantastic way of developing these skills which can support their learning in all subjects. Delphi Philosophy has been put together in such a way that children make progress in their listening, questioning, reasoning and explaining skills – just by engaging with the stories and joining in the activities! We have a substantial assessment system in place which informs the structure of our stories and schemes of work, meaning we can observe and measure the progress children make. What’s more, learning to teach philosophy to children helps develop the teacher’s skills so that all your discussions and questioning, in whatever subject, has a greater impact. We know it works – we’ve been doing it for years!

There’s never been a better time to get started – and we have new enquiries and resources ready for you.

Best Teacher Ever

Best Teacher Ever

Best Teacher Ever is our brand new, multi-part enquiry about learning. The purpose of this story and enquiry is to help children consider what learning means, and what is the best way we can learn new things. It was created to help children develop their metacognition, and better understand how teaching and learning really works. The story follows Delphi as she encounters her very first teachers. She is very excited at first, certain that she will find learning easy, whatever her friend Plato might think about it. Over the three main parts of the story she has lessons from three very different teachers - who just happen to be three famous teachers from the history of philosophy! Based on the ideas of Socrates, Plato, John Locke and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, this lively and engaging story will help children understand what really makes good teaching and learning.

Delphi the Dreamer

The Dream – available now for Delphi members

Delphi the Dreamer, our next full-length story and scheme of work, is almost here! After beginning work on this almost three years ago, we are currently in the final stages of putting this together for release during 2021 and 2022. This scheme of work follows the same format and structure as Delphi the Philosopher but is targeted at slightly older children (9-14) or those more experienced in doing philosophy. While Delphi the Philosopher focuses primarily on ethics, Delphi the Dreamer focuses on metaphy
