Many students wanted to transfer to Linda Pecks’ class after hearing from others about her unusual approach, using movement, music ,art and more to teach Philosophy. Linda did not allow the books to imprint knowledge on the students but through the vehicles of discussion, debate, internal exploration and more their minds were sparked, and inspired with heightened knowledge and understanding.
