Provoking Thought

Memory and Thinking in ELT

Authored by Hall Houston

Provoking Thought is a collection of activities that emphasize using students' thoughts as a resource for language learning. The book's chapters cover five main areas: thinking, memory, creativity, critical thinking, and expressing thought in writing. Each chapter opens up numerous opportunities for language practice through role play, discussion, kinesthetic learning, guessing games, brainstorming, and project work. The activities are easy-to-use, require little or no preparation, and are highly adaptable to a communicative or task-based approach.

Provoking Thought also contains helpful tips for using thinking in the language classroom, as well as practical advice on error correction and getting students to use English more in class. Another highlight of the book is a selection of interviews with experts on memory, creativity and critical thinking, including Vincent Ryan Ruggiero (author of The Art of Thinking) and Alane Jordan Starko (author of Creativity in the Classroom).
