  • The practical examples are obviously inspiring to critical thinking activities. I will like you to create more examples that will integrate other subjects. Particularly, the science subjects so as to make it easier for non professionals to adapt in classroom. In Nigeria, most of the public schools do not have the standard learning facilities, hence, I’m working on adaptability of modern techniques to fit into our cultural background, using available resources.
