Philosophy, which encourages students to ask questions, look at familiar things in new ways, listen to one another, and examine their own beliefs and positions, is a fantastic way for high school students to learn about themselves and the world around them. It also helps them prepare for their futures in a complex, ever-changing world. Students in this immersive learning class learned about best practices in philosophy education for high school students, ran a high school philosophy club at Muncie Central High School, and planned and hosted an innovative philosophy conference held at Ball State University for high school students across the state.
