UPDATED DECEMBER 2016: HIGHER ORDER THINKING ACTIVITIES and printables for engagement and real learning. This product is also now part of my Critical Thinking Activities for Any Text Bundle

While facts have their place, they should not be the focus of our teaching. If students are to become life long learners, they need to be critical thinkers and problem solvers. So, instead of just memorizing facts and other people’s ideas, they need to practice higher order thinking—HOT—skills so they can truly grow as learners.

This life-long tool includes a variety of activities that ask students to move beyond basic comprehension to true understanding. Most importantly, they put the responsibility for thinking and learning on the student, rather than the teacher.

Included are close-reading bookmarks, learning stations for Bloom's Taxonomy questioning, graphic organizers and many opportunities for students to collaborate as they practice very important critical thinking skills.
