A Sequence of Critical Thinking TasksA Sequence of Critical Thinking Tasks

Critical thinking skills remain at the forefront of educational discussions. School systems demand that critical thinking be incorporated into curricula, and standardized testing increasingly assesses it. However, there remains the question of how English language teachers include the development and practice of these important skills in their lessons. To this end, this article presents a sequence of seven critical thinking tasks, a flexible framework that acts as a practical tool for planning and developing level-appropriate classroom materials that encourage and advance critical thinking.

Thinking Matters: Inferencing in ESL Reading LessonsThinking Matters: Inferencing in ESL Reading Lessons

This article discusses the significance of inferencing in reading comprehension and addresses theoretical and practical issues related to teaching inferencing in English classrooms. The author explains the nature of inferencing in reading and, drawing on previous research findings and his own reflections on teaching reading to English as a second language (ESL) students, proposes a framework in which inferencing is taught via an explicit instruction approach. A sample lesson is included. Although the focus is on inferencing in an ESL context, the discussion has implications for the general English learning domain.
