  1. H.O.T.S


    As you all are aware that from the last year due weight age has been given to the questions which test HIGHER ORDER THINKING SKILLS of the students in the CBSE board examinations. Now a question arises what is HOTS? And how can we lead from MOTS to HOTS?
    This site has always worked on the principle of “EDUCATION IS SHARING”, so to keep you abreast of the changes in educational scenario we are here with answers of your probable queries.
      A guide to Productive Pedagogies: Classroom reflection manual states that:
    Higher-order thinking by students involves the transformation of information and ideas. This transformation occurs when students combine facts and ideas and synthesise, generalise, explain, hypothesise or arrive at some conclusion or interpretation. Manipulating information and ideas through these processes allows students to solve problems, gain understanding and discover new meaning. When students engage in the construction of knowledge, an element of uncertainty is introduced into the instructional process and the outcomes are not always predictable; in other words, the teacher is not certain what the students will produce. In helping students become producers of knowledge, the teacher’s main instructional task is to create activities or environments that allow them opportunities to engage in higher-order thinking.
    (Department of Education, Queensland, 2002, p. 1)

    This is in context to the inculcation of HOTS amongst the students.
    I as an educator strongly feel that this can be achieved if a teacher rather than herself/himself giving assignments involving questions based on
     HOTS,should give such a skill to the students only where they can frame such questions themselves.

     The quality of the questions framed will b the parameter of the clarity of the concept and depth of their thinking.
    This can b further achieved by giving assignments to the students where they frame questions from the portion taught and the same can b assimilated and compiled in the form of
    question bank of the class nd school bearing the batch year.
