Title: Philosophy for Children Hawaiʻi and its influence on the development of students' reflective thinking in classroom discussions
Authors: Lukey, Natalia L.
Issue Date: Aug 2006
Abstract: This study focuses on whether the Philosophy for Children Hawaii program (P4C Hawaii) is facilitating reflective thinking in classroom discussions. This study examines the reflective thinking of the group as a whole. Certain characteristics of Dewey's concept of reflective thinking are incorporated into the P4C Hawaii program. They are: (a) persistence; (b) whether the discussion scratched beneath the surface of the topic; ( c) the use of the Good Thinker's Tool Kit; and (d) progress in the inquiry. These characteristics were used in the analysis of three elementary classroom discussions throughout the fall semester of the 2005-2006 school year. This study provides evidence that the P4C Hawaii program facilitates reflective thinking and growth of reflective thinking across time when its guidelines are consistently followed.
