Higher Order Thinking
Frequently misunderstood and always a concern of school administrators, Higher Order Cognition (HOC) is a very important pathway of learning. Teachers want to emphasize the importance of higher order thinking in their lesson planning but often they don’t understand the different aspects of this construct. In this webinar, we will explore the 7 different categories of higher order thinking and gain an understanding of how it is possible to have both areas of strengths and areas of challenges in this learning pathway. We will consider ways to enhance students’ higher order thinking skills and how to support students who struggle with these subsets of thinking.
