      Hi- How about a scenario? The students can then role play. They can then suggest how an idealist, a realist, and a neo-scholastic (neo-thomism) would react in a given situation. Then they have to justify their response/point of view- whether they believe in it or not. I think that it could be both fun and impactful.

          I think Catlin Tucker's station rotation model would be *perfect* for learning these. If you focus on one philosophy per day and organize 2-3 stations (depending on your class time), they can engage with different parts of the theory to solidify the learning. Plus, the getting up and moving works wonders for their attention span! I've been adapting this strategy for a few weeks now and have seen immense success with it. Good luck!
