Peter Worley’s latest book provides a wealth of interesting and engaging lessons based around the pedagogy of philosophical discussions in the classroom. The book’s subtitle references the curriculum, and indeed the book contains ‘thought adventures’ to deepen and enliven learning in many of the subjects taught in schools. While the curriculum in question is pretty clearly the National Curriculum in England, none of the lessons are so closely tied to the details of that curriculum that they could not be used in other countries.
