  1. I am a teacher of Primary school students and I have been looking for resources for years. I would like to see religion courses replaced with philosophy courses but I can’t admit this to any administrator. Any resource would be much appreciated. I was so pleased to hear about this Institute. Thanks to CBC, of course. Barbara

  2. I am interested in teaching resources to better facilitate Socratic seminars, strategic questioning and critical thinking responses in the classroom. Any resources you can recommend for assist would be greatly appreciated.
