Let’s Think In English

At BVIS we are committed to continually train our staff to deliver lessons that have been proven to accelerate the learning of our students. We want to be at the forefront of the best teaching techniques in the world and we can only maintain this by constantly updating what we do. 

We were very lucky this week to welcome Michael Walsh back to BVIS to continue his work with the English Department. Michael is the lead trainer for Let’s Think in English and has been working closely with BIS HCMC for 3 years and with the English Department at BVIS for the past two years.

Let’s Think in English is a programme developed by King’s College London which helps students develop their higher order thinking skills. The programme is currently used in over three hundred schools in the United Kingdom and BVIS HCMC is one of the very first International Schools in the world to start delivering the programme. Let’s Think in English is based on the concept of Cognitive Acceleration which is designed to encourage students’ deeper, more abstract thinking with the emphasis on reasoning and justification for their ideas. The programme helps both Primary and Secondary pupils to develop their higher-order thinking skills which then has an impact not just in English but also on other school subjects. The programme also develops students’ ability to express ideas, and improve their confidence with unseen texts - whether fiction, poetry or non-fiction. 

In the highly engaging Let’s Think lessons, children are challenged to work at their upper limit of cognition which creates what is known as “desirable difficulty”; thus making them think harder. And as we know, successful teaching and learning happens when children think harder and are challenged.

BVIS introduced LTiE lessons to our Year 7 & 8 students last year. It appears Let’s Think is challenging children to think harder and, as we are seeing, this is positively impacting on their learning. This year we are planning to extend provision of these lessons so that all students in Years 7, 8 & 9 will have regular LTiE lessons.
