Thinking Citizens: How to Make PSE Philosophical

This is CEWC’s own bilingual resource, produced in 2005 with support from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. A basic photocopiable pack, it provides an introduction to P4C and highlights links between P4C and Attitudes and Values covered in the pre-2008 PSE Framework. It includes both practical warm-up activities and sample stimuli for philosophical enquiries.

Skills for Democracy

This pack is designed to help young people explore and evaluate the skills that they need to participate in democracy.

The skills covered, which were short-listed after consultation with 250 young people, are:

  • Communication
  • Decision making
  • Meeting
  • Compromise
  • Debate

Learners develop the skills through classroom activities on 6 topics related to democracy: Fairtrade, The Perfect Candidate, The Voluntary Sector, Non-Formal Democracy, The Role of the Media and Devolution. Each activity comprises a lesson plan, a topic information sheet, a skills sheet and any worksheets that may be required. Also included are self-assessment sheets, which use the image of the Greek Parthenon with skills marked on the pillars.
