Thinking about Texts Bk 2 - Thinking hats and multiple intelligences


Here's an unique opportunity to systematically extend your students' thinking skills within your English programme. Each task card on a given text type requires your students to use a particular thinking strategy in order to successfully complete it. Multiple intelligences, within a thinking hats framework, form the foundations of Book 2. Here the tasks are concerned with shorter text types such as poetry, speeches, and newspaper articles.
