Touchstone Discussion Project 

Touchstones Project Logo

Touchstones Discussion Project is a non-profit education organization that teaches people essential communication, thinking, and leadership skills. Their discussion-based programs are developed and implemented with learners of all ages and walks of life. From elementary school grades through professional executive adults, participants in Touchstones programs improve their skills in speaking, active listening, critical and reflective thinking, problem solving, and collaboration. Touchstones discussion leaders and participants alike learn to work with others in ways that enhance and broaden their own knowledge and understanding, leading to a more inclusive and respective community and society.

In the Montessori classroom teachers build sophisticated thinking—such as inference, critical analysis, and insight—while introducing the younger generation to the legacy of ideas that illuminate our understanding of the world, by providing a forum for conversation. Through the use of the primary texts, guides enable students to take control of their learning, and lead them to see that true learning is not about satisfying the test maker but about satisfying their own wondering.
