Helping Teens to Think Beyond Language: Critical thinking, Values and Self-Esteem
Date: Tuesday 20 October
The latest studies into the teenage brain reveal why adolescents are prone to risk-taking, but at the same time have amazing potential for change and social adaptability. For the educator, this offers excellent opportunities to build strong language skills while at the same time challenging their teenage students to think beyond language, with an emphasis on critical thinking, values and self-esteem – ensuring academic and lifelong success.
