This is a series of classroom activities designed to improve communication while developing creative thinking.
Creative thinking techniques encourage students to think in new and interesting ways to solve problems and address a variety of situations. These creative thinking techniques can help your learners find new ways in which to use or review language.
This activity is designed for beginner or elementary level students. It deals with vocabulary related to members of the family and describing specific likes and dislikes.
This creative technique in this lesson utilizes brainstorming skills with a graphic organizer.
Included with this worksheet is a simple to follow lesson plan procedure that places this creative thinking activity into the ECRIF (encounter, clarify, remember, internalize, fluency) framework. In the ECRIF framework the creative thinking activity is often a support activity used for remember and internalize. Final fluency activities are provided as well. The fluency activities are closely scaffolded from the internalize activity to help learners achieve communicative success.
