Provoking Thought is a collection of activities that emphasize using students' thoughts as a resource for language learning. The book's chapters cover five main areas: thinking, memory, creativity, critical thinking, and expressing thought in writing. Each chapter opens up numerous opportunities for language practice through role play, discussion, kinesthetic learning, guessing games, brainstorming, and project work. The activities are easy-to-use, require little or no preparation, and are highly adaptable to a communicative or task-based approach. 
Provoking Thought also contains helpful tips for using thinking in the language classroom, as well as practical advice on error correction and getting students to use English more in class. Another highlight of the book is a selection of interviews with experts on memory, creativity and critical thinking, including Vincent Ryan Ruggiero (author of The Art of Thinking) and Alane Jordan Starko (author of Creativity in the Classroom).

Review:

"A brilliant collection of out-of-the-box and totally engaging humanistic teaching gems." -- Sab Will, Hotchpotchenglish.com

"Provoking Thought is a great resource for not just language teachers but most probably other kinds of teachers as well who need to engage their students and start a far more dynamic classroom atmosphere." -- Alberto Gaspar, The APPI Journal

"Stimulating and interesting... you should get hold of the excellent Provoking Thought. Highly recommended." --Alistair Dickinson, Developing Teachers

"I would encourage anyone with upper level students, or simply an interest in the workings of the mind and the desire to bring the reflection of such into a classroom, to explore what this book has to offer. Houston has put together a valuable resource and has, in fact, provoked my own thoughts on classroom practices." -- Kay Brushett, IH Journal

"This is a gem of a book. Provoking Thought is well laid out, easy to use and written without too much EFL jargon. This is a good little resource to have on your reference shelf." -- Sandee Thompson, Modern English Teacher
