P4C: The Return of the Philosophers! Dorian is joined by two heavyweights in the philosophy for children world Nick Chandley & Roger Sutcliffe. Expect rich discussion, deep thought and some nuggets of discourse that have the potential to make you reflect upon your pedagogy and educational philosophy. Nick & Roger carefully articulate their belief that philosophy in (and beyond) the classroom has the capacity to shape positive dispositions, build skills and understanding in our students, creating critical thinkers prepared for lifelong learning. We discuss Roger’s book ‘Thinking Moves A-Z’ which offers a definitive collection of thinking processes to frame discussions and give a shared language for metacognitive thinking. This was a fascinating and thought provoking discussion and an absolute pleasure to be part of! My brain hurts :)   Links mentioned in the show Dialogue Works https://dialogueworks.co.uk/  Thinking Moves A-Z: Metacognition Made Simple https://www.amazon.com/Thinking-Moves-Z-Metacognition-Simple/dp/1908901039  Roger’s website  https://philosophicalteaching.com/  Sapere https://www.sapere.org.uk/ Matthew Lipmann - Socrates for six year olds https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2B6661C0B0CF7C98  Teaching for Better Thinking, by Laurance Splitter and Ann Margaret Sharp https://www.amazon.co.uk/Teaching-Better-Thinking-Classroom-Community/dp/0864311435
