About:

Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) must be a component of all units and lessons in this age of rigorous standards. This professional development course examines the HOTS required for students to become strategic thinkers, extend their thinking, solve complex problems, reason, analyze and communicate their understandings. Norman Webb's Depth of Knowledge construct, which measures cognitive demand, suggests complex and challenging assessments must be supported by rigorous instruction. Participants will explore and discuss strategies to integrate HOTS into regular classroom instruction.

This undergraduate-level course is 1 week To enroll, speak with an Enrollment Representative.
