Helping Students use a HOT Skills Wheel to enhance Higher Order Thinking on Botany (and other science) Topics.
Building higher order thinking skills is important to studies in botany. Participants in this symposium will make a H.O.T. Skills Wheel and use it in small groups to study some botany so they will have first hand experience to share with their own students. Participants should bring a journal article or portion of text, and may bring colored pencils, markers or crayons (6 light colors), other art or music supplies (guitar, if you'd like to use it, for example), and a folder.
After trying the wheel for various botany topics, participants will share their experiences. After returning home, participants are encouraged to use the new H.O.T. skills wheels with their classes and submit their results for possible publication in text or on the web.
