How to make a great presentation: get schooled by my grade 8 philosophy student

I teach a philosophy elective to some of our middle school students. At the end of the year I asked them to answer the two questions we began with: Who are you? and, What are you supposed to do here?

Alex’s answer is remarkably coherent. He was even able to frame a morality consistent with his world view: whatever promotes survival is good and whatever inhibits is bad. I don’t see that very often in adults.

Along the way, he schools us with his presentation skills!
