What is p4c.com?
P4C.COM IS A WEB SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE for teachers who want pupils of all ages to think for themselves through philosophical dialogue with others. We provide resources, lesson plans, advice, collaboration, and powerful tools for creating your own dynamic materials.
A not-for-profit co-operative
We are a registered co-operative committed to co-operative principles including self-sufficiency, independence and co-operation. Subscriptions enable the site to be maintained and developed, for editorial services to be paid for and for writers to be rewarded for their efforts. It is therefore self-sustaining. When someone has contributed a certain number of resources, they have the option to apply for co-operative membership, to share in the management of p4c.com and enjoy other benefits such as free conferences and training. Individuals and organisations can become members.
