Philosophy and Reason is a Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority subject that focuses on teaching critical thinking skills. The subject provides excellent results on the Queensland Core Skills Test. Peter Ellerton from the UQCTP sits on the State review Panel for Philosophy and Reason, which moderates all work through the state in this subject, and also leads the syllabus Expert Writing Team, which is currently rewriting the Philosophy and Reason syllabus.
The UQCTP has worked with schools in Brisbane, through the Boonah region, and north into the Townsville and Cairns regions to assist schools in implementing the Philosophy and Reason course. This has been done through teacher training and resourcing.
