Open Access research that is helping to improve educational outcomes for children

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Education, including those researching educational and social practices in curricular subjects. Research in this area seeks to understand the complex influences that increase curricula capacity and engagement by studying how curriculum practices relate to cultural, intellectual and social practices in and out of schools and nurseries.

Research at the School of Education also spans a number of other areas, including inclusive pedagogy, philosophy of education, health and wellbeing within health-related aspects of education (e.g. physical education and sport pedagogy, autism and technology, counselling education, and pedagogies for mental and emotional health), languages education, and other areas.

Abstract

This book offers a critical insight into issues relating to the theory and practice of Philosophy for Children (P4C). It is international in flavour, written by a range of authors from the academic and practice communities, some of whom are leading figures in the field of P4C/ The editors, Gregory, Haynes and Murris, have succeeded in presenting a text that is comprehensive in scope and dense in content, with each chapter having the potential to be a book in its own right. Given that P4C is reaching its half-century, this is a timely volume.
