JOHN HUGHES MAY 28 / MOSCOW Higher Order Thinking can make your English lessons more motivating and meaningful for students
Higher Order Thinking (HOT) can make your English lessons more motivating and meaningful for students. In this day-long series of three workshops, we'll look at practical techniques and activities for transforming our lessons so that they combine both lower and higher order thinking.
We'll assess what we mean by critical and creative thinking and we'll discover that by challenging our learners to think both critically and creatively, we can help develop their autonomy, their motivation, and their communication skills. Throughout our sessions, theory will be backed up with practical, fun and engaging activities that you can take away and use in your own classrooms.

Critical thinking about topics that matter

Creative thinking inside the box
Teachers and students love creativity in the classroom but sometimes it can be hard to achieve. In this workshop I'd like to consider a technique in which students think 'inside the box' (instead of 'outside the box') and inspire their creativity.
