Feel first, think second
Posted March 9, 2014on:
If you are honest (and funny) about Facebook lookback videos, what would you say?
Perhaps something like the video above. But not as funny.
Or a lot more tragic. Like the video below.
It does not take much to create opportunities for some critical thinking.
It might help to bring in a context shared by all your learners. It might also help to use a funny video.
Not all will identify with the father’s loss of his son. Not all with appreciate the humour. But most, if not all, will react to the emotion.
If we want our learners to think, we must get them to feel first.
