Summary

Across the world, education is being re-structured to include greater focus on developing critical and creative skills. In second language education, research suggests cognition and language development is closely related. Yet, despite the teaching of thinking skills, integrating thinking in language teaching has been peripheral.

Thinking Skills and Creativity in Second Language Education presents a range of investigations exploring the relationship between thinking skills and creativity and second language education. Focusing on approaches such as cognitive, affective, social and emotional, this book highlights current research and raises questions that will set the direction for future research. It aims to:

  • Provide an in-depth understanding of the link between second language development and thinking skills
  • Consider approaches to develop thinking skills in second language instructions
  • Examine practices in implementing thinking skills in second language learning
  • Offer an updated literature on thinking skills in second language education

A new addition to the Research on Teaching and Thinking Creativity series, this book is relevant to researchers in the field of educational psychology, Masters and PhD students as well as anyone interested in developing thinking skills.
