Helping students learn discussion skills, both oral and written, should be part of most curriculum. A fun way to do that would be using simple, but engaging philosophical discussion points. This website, developed by college philosophy professor, Tom Wartenberg, is called “What’s the Big Idea?” and uses film to discuss some great topics. Using these topics and the guidelines for discussions, you can help students build a foundation for their discussions with each other and also show we engage in “philosophy” regularly.
