Presented by Anita Chamberlain, British International School in Stavanger, Norway

An introduction to the integration of Philosophy throughout the PYP curriculum within an International School Setting. In this webinar, Anita Chamberlain will explain why philosophy within her classroom is about doing philosophy and philosophising, not necessarily learning about the subject of philosophy.

 Monday 11 June 2018: MEMBER WEBINAR: HPL in English
Presented by Lucie Scannell & Rebecca Hollis, Jack Hunt School, UK

This webinar will be a practical consideration of how you can use HPL to develop lessons that establish and maintain creative and fluid thinking within the English classroom. We will be considering how to encourage students • to generate and articulate ideas within a collaborative environment, • to make abstract ideas tangible thus removing the fear of failure and allowing aspirational
thinking, • to critically and dialogically generate wider thinking building on existing foundations.
