"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
