Mastering academic English is the single highest determinant of academic success in a university program. While building linguistic skills students also need to develop critical thinking skills that to ensure academic success. In this webinar, author and trainer Christina Cavage answers these questions: How do we build the language skills students need to be successful in a wide variety of disciplines while building academic skills as well? When will they be linguistically ready for the rigor that lies ahead? Participants gain an understanding of how rigorous academic language can carefully be scaffolded with systematic skills development to close the skills gap. Participants further explore how by employing several effective practices, teachers can leverage the content and prepare their students for academic success and beyond.
Teaching critical thinking is necessary for academic success beyond the ELT classroom. Constructing lessons that embed critical thinking are the first step. However, it is not enough to only embed critical thinking into our everyday listening, speaking, reading and writing lessons, but how can we effectively assess critical thinking? In this webinar, author and trainer Christina Cavage explores both traditional and non-traditional assessments for determining students’ proficiencies in critical thinking.
Critical thinking is essential to university success. While our language classes often focus on developing language proficiency, proficiency in critical thinking is equally important for success. So, how can we embed critical thinking into our everyday language lessons? In this webinar, author and trainer Christina Cavage walks you through proven strategies and techniques to build both the critical thinking tasks into classroom lessons, and meaningful assignments outside of class. Participants gain an understanding of task-based learning, project-based learning and inquiry-based learning.
In this webinar, author and trainer Christina Cavage unpacks critical thinking in the ELT classroom. She answers these questions: What is critical thinking?

Participants gain an understanding of the importance in teaching critical thinking in our EAP courses to ensure academic and cultural success beyond our programs.
