Higher-Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) in Education - ThoughtCo.
Critical thinking is a higher-order thinking skill. Higher-order thinking skills go beyond basic observation of facts and memorization. They are what we are talking about when we want our students to be evaluative, creative and innovative. When most people think of critical thinking, they think that their words (or the words of others) are supposed to get “criticized” and torn apart in.
