Penny Ur – ‘Using higher order thinking skills’

22 June 2013 at 3pm BST 

“It is important for ELT teaching to include tasks based on both lower- and higher-order thinking skills. In this session I shall define what ‘higher-order thinking skills’ are, and suggest various ways in which they can be integrated into English teaching at various levels.”


Penny Ur has thirty-five years’ experience as an English teacher in primary and secondary schools in Israel. Now retired, she has taught B.A. and M.A. courses at Oranim Academic College of Education and Haifa University, and has presented papers at TESOL, IATEFL and other English teachers’ conferences worldwide. She was recently awarded the OBE.
She was for ten years the editor of the Cambridge Handbooks for Language Teachers series. Her books include Discussions that work (1981), Five minute activities (co authored with Andrew Wright) (1992), Grammar practice activities (2nd Edition) (2009), Vocabulary activities (2012), and A course in English language teaching (2012), all published by Cambridge University Press.
