A COMPREHENSIVE COMPANION TO VCE UNITS 1&2 – NOW IN THIRD EDITION
VCE Philosophy: A Student Text for Units 1&2 is the only introductory textbook written specifically for students and teachers of VCE Philosophy. Containing a wide variety of activities, discussion questions, ideas for assessment and guides for studying primary philosophical texts, VCE Philosophy: A Student Text for Units 1&2 will equip students with the knowledge and skills required to fully engage in VCE Philosophy, and provide teachers with a wealth of ideas for constructing a stimulating and engaging curriculum. This third edition, while substantially the same as the second edition, has been updated throughout, features new text guides, and reflects the minor changes made to the Units 1&2 course in the latest VCE Philosophy Study Design (2019).
STUDENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ‘DO’ PHILOSOPHY
Through a wide variety of activities, discussion questions and opportunities for reflection, students will exercise their critical thinking skills, both independently and in exchanges with others.
A COMPREHENSIVE GROUNDING IN THE KEY KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS
Drawing on decades of teaching and assessing experience, and a thorough understanding of the requirements of the VCE Philosophy course, the authors ensure that each chapter provides students with multiple opportunities to develop and exercise the key knowledge and skills described in the VCE Philosophy Study Design (2019).
CLOSE EXAMINATION OF PRIMARY TEXTS
The capacity to work with primary philosophy texts is vital for successful engagement in VCE Philosophy. Through a variety of stimulating classroom tasks, discussion plans and writing activities, VCE Philosophy: A Student Text for Units 1&2 encourages students to develop skills of reasoning, analysis and evaluation in relation to primary philosophical texts.
