In this module, we'll take a look at what one teacher is doing to bring critical and creative thinking into her classes. Her students are learning to take a "think locally and act globally" approach to problem-solving and new areas of inquiry in their learning as they develop their language skills.
This is the first week in a large class of young adults. The teacher is using a content-based approach with a Mass Media theme as a basis for the day's activities. She is assessing students' skills as they participate in and complete a series of tasks. Observe the sequence of activities that she has students do over the course of the class. Ask yourself, "In what ways are critical and creative thinking involved?"
An innovative offering from the Office of English Language Programs, Shaping the Way We Teach English, is a 14-module teacher training video series developed and produced in cooperation with the University of Oregon.
