A way in which the four philosophies can be taught to students is through a gallery walk. In groups students can create posters that explain the following questions: Are people good?, How should children be raised?, How should society be governed?, and What is the perfect society?
Once students have created posters for their assigned philosophy, students will be able to display there artifacts to their classmates. Posters can be displayed around the room and students can take notes and ask questions about the various philosophies. This is a great activity that I have incorporated previously when introducing various beliefs. After the gallery walk, students can engage in a mock debate, similar to the one we had today and argue what is the best philosophy for our society.

I like your idea, building up onto your idea, because I teach Advance Spanish in high school, I would like to add a research part to it. In addition to the gallery walk with the four schools of thought, I would ask students to research the impact of those philosophies in the modern Chinese society/ culture.
