Watch before you read...
We started writing serious Think Tanks from January 2018. We only had a couple hundred subscribers back then, so it is likely most of our current readership missed some truly great articles. We won’t let that happen! So, we asked our readers, authors, and editors to nominate some articles they thought were exceptional (editors’ pieces excluded) and we’re giving you these superb articles again, right here. Take a look at what you missed!
In the introduction to the issue, we list all the main articles written that year. Then, in the Think Tank itself, Caroline Handley gives us the lowdown on working memory, James Dunn and Hiroshi Nakagawa explain confirmation bias, Harumi Kimura considers how L2 anxiety might be reframed in a positive way, Amanda Gillis-Furutaka helps unravel the mysterious adolescent brain, and Julia Daley brings it all together by describing the four most important things she teaches her learners about their brains. We included a PLUS section article from 2018, in which Marc Helgesen offers useful materials for teaching learners about sleep.
See? We told you there was some great stuff you missed! And more. Check the Think Tank archive here.
