This is a brief announcement about my second book, titled Provoking Thought.

Provoking Thought is a collection of ready-to-use, student-centered activities designed for the ESL/EFL classroom. This book emphasizes using students' thought processes as a resource for language learning. Each chapter covers a different theme: thinking, memory, creativity, critical thinking and expressing thought in writing. Provoking Thought includes an abundant variety of activities incorporating elements of pair work, group work, discussion, role play, brainstorming, kinesthetic learning, and project work. It's ideal for teachers who want to add some variety to their lessons.

For a preview of the book, see this article in the October issue of Humanising Language Teaching:
