Transcript of Philosophical Chairs
WHAT IS "PHILOSOPHICAL CHAIRS?"
“An organized dialogue that helps students develop the ability to give careful attention to other students’ comments and to actively engage in constructive dialogue with one another”
WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?
Class is divided into those who agree with the statement
How can we engage ourselves
in rigorous debate using collaboration and critical reading strategies?
RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
Understand the statement and choose a side.
Listen carefully when others speak and
seek to understand
their argument even if you don’t agree.
Wait for the mediator to recognize you before you speak; only one person speaks at a time.
You must first summarize briefly the previous speaker’s arguments before you make your response.
Which side are YOU on?
. . . and those who disagree with the statement
Who's the mediator?
Calls on sides to speak
May paraphrase arguments made by each side for clarification
Ensures participation by as many students as possible
Address the ideas, not the person stating them.
Keep an open mind
; move to the other side or the undecided section if your opinion is swayed.
Support the mediator by
and by NOT dominating the Philosophical Chairs debate.
