A Taste of P4C: Philosophy for Children
Thursday, May 25, 2017 - 7:00pm
Hebrew College

Philosophy for Children is  a student-centered  approach that works with children on important questions such as: What is goodness? What kind of life is worth living? Are there different kinds of truth? The approach, applied to Bible, helps children search for meaning and develop a world view. A Taste of P4C is your opportunity to experience this innovative educational approach in preparation for joining our four day seminar in July 2017. Meet Dr. Jen Glaser and hear from local educators using P4C in their classrooms and schools. RSVP to dron@hebrewcollege.edu.
