Cultivates higher order thinking

Page 4: Cluster Sharing

Lower-order thinking occurs when studentsare asked to receive or recite factualinformation or to employ rules andalgorithms through repetitive routines.Students are given pre specified knowledgeranging from simple facts and information

tomore complex concepts.Such knowledge is conveyed to studentsthrough a reading, worksheet, lecture orother direct instructional medium.

Higher-order thinking requires students to manipulateinformation and ideas in ways that transform theirmeaning and implications. This transformation occurswhen students combine facts and ideas in order tosynthesise, generalise, explain, hypothesise or arrive

atsome conclusion or interpretation. Manipulatinginformation and ideas Through these processes allowsstudents to solve problems and discover new (for

them)meanings and understandings.

It provides a way to organise thinking skills into

six levels, from the most basic to the morecomplex levels of thinking.
