Promoting Higher Order Thinking Processes
Students need practice making connections between what they are learning and what they already know. Higher order thinking strategies allow students to practice everyday complex thinking skills such as problem-solving, decision-making, investigation, reflective thinking, experimental inquiry, and inductive/deductive reasoning. Give teachers a full toolbox of complex thinking strategies that promote collaboration while immersing students in the content with complex questions.
At this workshop
Higher order thinking processes prepare students to address complex real-world situations. At this institute, participants will examine critical thinking in terms of cognitive complexity, explore strategies for designing collaborative activities that engage students in critical thinking, and analyze resources for increasing the level of student cognition in lessons every day.
Participants will leave with a toolbox of strategies for generating student questions, deepening content understanding, and preparing students to tackle complex personal and social issues.
Our workshops focus on evidence-based approaches that can be used by teachers and leaders immediately. Flexible delivery options—ranging from face-to-face onsite institutes to self-paced online learning—help simplify and personalize professional learning for all stakeholders. Schedule a workshop that fits your unique time and budget needs.
