What are HOTS?

Why are HOTS important?

How can we structure our lessons to promote HOTS?

HOTS – What are they?
  • Getting students to use higher order cognitive processes
  • Use of the Analysis, Synthesis, Evaluate and Link Lesson objectives
  • Increasing the use of open ended, thought-provoking questions
  • NOT just for the highest attaining students!
hots why are they important
HOTS – Why are they important?

Lead to a deep learning that goes beyond the acquisition of knowledge and embraces understanding and application of knowledge

  • Help students to consolidate learning

Objectives:

Complete a research task to:

            1. Explain how an illegal drug alters the physiology of the body

            2. Discuss the dangers of using the illegal drug

            3. Analyse the impact of increasing use of this drug on society

            6. Analyse: What impact may this have on a local community where drug use is high?

            7. Cognitive conflict: Compare the impact of this illegal drug with that of alcohol use?

            8. Create: An information sheet showing the risks of drug use and evaluating the impact of drug use on society. 

Use the following questions to help you present the information in the clearest method:

                 a. How can you present the information to help people understand the link between drug use and crime rates?

                                    -Will graphs and bar charts help?

                                    -Should you section the information to make it clearer?

                 b. What might help people to understand all of the terms you use in your information pack?
