Language Teaching through Critical Thinking and Self-Awareness - 0 views

    "Applying critical thinking in the language classroom enables and encourages learners to speculate, criticize, and form conclusions about knowledge they already have as well as information they will acquire in the future. To activate and develop critical thinking in their students, language teachers need to set up tasks and activities and adjust their teaching programs and materials to promote such thinking. Teaching language through critical thinking enables learners to recognize a wide range of subjective analyses, to develop self-awareness, and to see linkages and complexities they might otherwise miss."

The Role of Questions in Teaching, Thinking and Le - 0 views

  • If we want thinking we must stimulate it with questions that lead students to further questions. We must overcome what previous schooling has done to the thinking of students. We must resuscitate minds that are largely dead when we receive them. We must give our students what might be called "artificial cogitation" (the intellectual equivalent of artificial respiration).

      Arts teach student's to ask questions, not provide answers. Like in Improv - "Yes, and..." this agrees a concept and adds to the narrative. Never negate. Like and answer. "Why?" Game. Superficial question that digs for deeper answers.

  • only students who have questions are really thinking and learning
  • all statements that this or that is so — are implicit answers to questions
  • Answers on the other hand, often signal a full stop in thought
    How deep questions drive thought. Statements are contrived originally by answering questions.

    So, how do we provide "artificial cogitation"?
    Need to ask questions to be able to think and then comes the learning.
