Creating Thinking in Classrooms for the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative

The Public Affairs Section of the U. S. Embassy Bangkok announces an open competition for a cooperative agreement to develop and implement a six-day workshop (inclusive of arrival and departure days) in Bangkok on Critical Thinking in Classrooms for the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI),

pending the availability of funds.

The YSEALI Critical Thinking in Classrooms will bring together 60 YSEALI members (5 participants and one YSEALI alumni mentor from each ASEAN country) who have education or media backgrounds and leadership potential.

The workshop will enable participants to study about the U.S.-inspired classroom modules focused on critical thinking.

Participating organizations could include Odyssey of the Mind, Teach for America, and former Teacher of the Year awardees.

Modules can touch on what critical thinking is, how we can develop it, where it can be applied, and how to analyze sources of information—including print media, local influencers, online media, and social media.

The workshop should aim to encourage creativity and innovation through critical thinking, while building students’ capacity to recognize and call out disinformation and fake news.

The workshop would include field work at schools where innovative approaches are used to enhance critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Additionally, participants will have a chance to join cultural activities, company visits and other site visits that reflect ASEAN culture immersion and U.S.-ASEAN relations.
