What happens in a Question Workshop?
“Here we learn what things are, what words are. we walk to see what exists, what is real, we explain the words and the questions!” – Marco said, when evaluating one of the philosophy workshops. These are intended to be a space and a time to stop to think, “train” the critical eye, explore possibilities and investigate – together.
How does a Question Workshop take place?
In the workshops, we try to identify problems, in the form of questions, to investigate together. We can do this by reading a text or a newspaper article, a situation experienced by children or even images, videos. The resources can be diverse and must be adapted to the ages of the children with whom we are going to work. From there, conditions for dialogue are built, establishing some rules, such as, for example, to speak, we ask for the floor (we put our arm in the air).
