The Philosophy for Young Thinkers Program builds on the inquiry process and develops lessons in philosophical problem-solving and decision-making. The goal of this program is to recognise the importance of self-directed learning as a lifelong goal for each student. It also assists students with the development of higher levels of thinking and in oral/written communication skills development. It will motivate students to extend their thinking in all areas of the curriculum. As this curriculum continues to undergo development and revision our task becomes one of providing an alternative to the paper-pencil activities and game-like atmosphere which pervades many gifted programs.
