This blog is for philosophers, teachers who'd like to learn to teach AP-CP, interested students, and friends. It is also the American Philosophy Olympiad (APO) source site and the American link to the International Philosophy Olympiad (IPO). I will blog and invite guest bloggers to write on relevant ideas & aspirations, arguments, plans & projects, events, news, and people.
I have just been appointed to an APA committee that is relevant to my daily work and to this blog:
"Dear Joseph Murphy:
I am writing to give you formal notice that the American Philosophical Association’s board of officers has appointed you to a term as member of the APA’s Committee on Pre-College Instruction in Philosophy, starting on July 1, 2013 and ending June 30, 2016. Congratulations on this honor!
Please note that only members in good standing of the APA are eligible to serve on APA committees, and thus all members of APA committees are expected to pay membership dues in full and on time for each year of their committee service. If you have any questions about this policy or anything else related to your committee appointment, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
You have the sincere thanks of the board of officers for your willingness to serve the APA in this way. I look forward to working with you in your capacity on the committee.
All the best, Amy
