Course Outline

This course aims to enlighten parents and educators on ways in fostering young children’s higher order thinking skills (H.O.T.) through games. First, participants will differentiate between lower- and higher order thinking skills and questioning techniques. Second, participants will actively engage in games that aid children in recalling facts, categorizing facts or concrete items, applying facts as they search for solutions to hypothesis, and putting together facts or items in creative ways (Anderson, et al., 2001).
