21st Century Skills: Higher Order Thinking – Math
After thoroughly learning about and understanding division of fractions, students developed a way to explain & demonstrate division of fractions to their peers.
21st Century Skill
HOTS – Higher Order Thinking – Structuring the classroom environment so that students feel comfortable using HOTS to explore topics is imperative. It does not have to take a lot of planning, it can be something that is developed through higher level questioning and discussion skills that can happen during those “teachable” moments. Because they are using HOTS, their understanding of topics and the curriculum is broader and deeper, which results in increased academic achievement.
