ACT mini-lessons: the arts (middle years)

Access our arts mini-lessons for middle years students here. They will help you encourage authentic critical thinking (ACT) in your lessons, link your subject to the contemporary world, and prepare students for the TOK course.

Members of the site have access to 8 new MY mini-lessons every month, as well as 15 mini-lessons for senior students – so make sure you check back regularly for the latest presentations.

Receive 8 ACT mini-lessons every month exploring the very latest global issues

Members of the site receive 8 middle years mini-lessons every month, which can be used by any teacher to develop authentic critical thinking, link their lessons to contemporary global events, and explore epistemological issues related to their subject. Join us here!

In the meantime, please help yourself to three of our latest mini-lessons (above), which demonstrate how we help learners to go beyond the headlines, and develop a deep understanding of what’s going on the contemporary real-world.

Turn all your teachers into critical thinking teachers!

Our workshops demonstrate to all teachers – whatever their level, programme, or specialisation – how they can develop real-world critical thinking.

They’re engaging, jargon-free, and authentic, and give teachers practical takeaways that they can apply in the classroom, and help their students become nuanced, discerning knowers. Find out more here, and read our workshop brochure here.
