3.5 UNC Philosophy Department lesson plans
These lesson plans were created by students in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Philosophy Department’s Pre-College Philosophy class.
- This lesson for sixth and seventh grade introduces students to ethical discussions and dilemmas. It uses two well known scenarios, the Prisoner’s Dilemma and Plato’s Ring of Gyges. Lessons stress a deep understanding of community and our obligations.
- This sixth grade lesson plan will focus on identifying the qualities of a good/positive friendship. Students begin by drawing a representation of good friendship. They will then work in groups and as a class to discuss what characteristics make up a good friendship, and what characteristics do not.
