I believe a lot in activities which are open ended and which challenge students to find a solution or come up with their own interpretations and thoughts. They use their own meaning to build. Call it whatever you will -- the jargon is immense (critical thinking, peer learning, task based learning, discovery learning, problem solving - okay, I'll stop there but could go on!), it is a way to not only learn a language but learn "something". That's what it is all about . We teach students, not subjects!
