Connecting Three Phases in Reading: Using Graphic Organizers to Provoke Critical Thinking in the English Language Classroom

back to The Secrets of ELT 2008

Emily Ferlis (Bulgaria)

In this workshop, designed for secondary-level English educators, the focus will be on various strategies to use graphic organizers in the English language classroom, in order to provoke critical thinking in students. The workshop will look at one short story, "Carmen's Two Boyfriends", as well as eight various graphic organizers that can be used with this text. Finally, the workshop will discuss how to integrate these graphic organizers in pre-reading, during-reading, and after-reading activities.
