Critical thinking in ELT

New publication on critical thinking

screenshot 2019-01-04 at 10.28.12This title is now available from National Geographic Learning. It’s a methodology book which demystifies the term ‘critical thinking’ and makes it relevant to the ELT classroom. We were lucky to work with a number of advisors and reviewers, including Donald Freeman.

“This book presents a useful treatment of how broad ideas about critical thinking can be translated into particular classroom practices. The book brings together the authors’ views of critical thinking with their experiences working with teachers on these ideas. Paul Dummett and John Hughes have done a wonderful job of creating a text that bridges these important ideas with various ways of implementing them.”

You can also watch this presentation I gave at JALT 2018 just before the book came out but in which I suggest some of the ideas in it.
