Higher Order Thinking HOTS LOGO

Higher Order Thinking School (HOTS) is a continuum of teaching and learning that networks and develops a community of practice among those interested in teaching and learning in, about and through the arts using the HOTS Approach. HOTS practices and strategies stimulate student curiosity, ignite their sense of wonder, empower students so they feel invested in their school and their learning, and steer students toward a journey of lifelong learning. Students who attend a HOTS school enjoy numerous outlets for expression and for reinforcement of the intrinsic value of their thoughts.

The HOTS Approach is an innovative delivery system that provides teachers, teaching artists, administrators, parents, and arts organization educators vital professional development, resources, tools and strategies to develop, deepen and expand effective practices in arts education, arts integration, school culture change, and leadership development. HOT Schools participate in ongoing professional development and employ the HOTS Approach to advance teaching and learning along a continuum from Arts Access, to Arts Connection and Correlation, to Arts Integration.
