This assignment asks ESL students to combine several critical thinking skills into one task by answering a question: is it better to rent an apartment or buy?
Using logic puzzles and word games in the classroom is a good way to make learning English fun. If you need to fill a 20 minute gap with a high interest and useful speaking (or writing) experience, try one of these worksheets.
Do your students know how to think critically? Are they able to transition from descriptive writing to explanations? Can they suggest plausible causes and effects for social change? This ESL lesson exposes students to this kind of critical thinking and writing with built around chart analysis.
Do your English writing students have an eye for detail? These editing practice questions might help your students develop the skill of noticing.
