Contemporary Pragmatism 3 (1):127-143 (2006)

Teaching pragmatism effectively in a college setting is not easy. Institutions of higher learning are typically resistant to the application of pragmatic methods in the classroom. Teachers of pragmatism themselves may not be fully aware of the intellectualistic influences and constraints on their own pedagogy. This report of experiments in applying pragmatic pedagogy to character development may inspire teachers of pragmatism to develop further their own methods for teaching pragmatism more pragmatically. Character educators may see pragmatism as an effective method for a new and powerful approach to the cultivation of character in the classroom
