It is true that Higher Order Thinking is a big buzz word in education right now, and rightly so, we need to teach kids how to think at higher levels. I found this great article and thought it was well-written and usefully understandable...I'm pretty sure I can make some quick and easy changes to the way I respond to student questions.

Hello! My name is Jen Jones. I am passionate about literacy and research based best practices for 21st century literacy instruction. My goal for this blog is to provide high quality professional development in a casual, real-talk, teacher friendly way. When I'm not blogging about literacy instruction, I'm traveling the country providing face to face PD about best practices for literacy instruction or making & selling literacy products that make students think and make teachers better teachers. This is my goal.
