Abstract

The paper addresses critical thinking as an important 21st century skill in today’s knowledge-based society in the context of English for law enforcement instruction. The author elaborates the characteristics of critical thinking and its relevance to the field of law enforcement and explores ideas for its integration into the English language classroom through activities focused on law enforcement topics. More specifically, the paper offers interactive and communicative classroom activities related to the Macedonian translations of the adjective “legal”, the specificities of the concept of “money laundering”, simulation of a meeting on cyberbullying, delivering a speech addressing domestic violence victims and preparation of a negotiation plan with hostage-takers. The aim of the paper is to show how language instruction through role-playing and interactive group work activities can be used as a medium for fostering critical thinking skills specifically among learners of English for law enforcement.
