PACTISS: Resources for Educators

Philosophy, critical thinking, and logic instructors looking to integrate current events, humor, and multimedia resources into their classes will want to take a peek at Philosophers and Critical Thinkers in Senior Schools (PACTISS), a free database of resources for philosophy and critical thinking classrooms. Managed by Peter Ellington, a critical thinking instructor at the University of Queensland, this website highlights a variety of outside resources, including popular newspaper articles, scholarly articles, engaging videos, brainteasers cartoons, humor, and photographs. Each of these resources can be used to illustrate a variety of philosophical concepts and help students connect these concepts to their everyday lives. Ellington accompanies each resource with a brief explanation or short essay that situates it within the field of philosophy. Browsing by topic is an easy way to navigate the site, offering material in the areas of Philosophy of Science, Deductive Logic, Social and Political Philosophy, Ethics and Moral Philosophy, and more.
