Higher order thinking requires the learning of critical thinking and problem solving. According to the cognitive domain of Bloom’s taxonomy, there are six areas of concentration: knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.
Higher order thinking skills are those skills in the top three levels: analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. Our approach develops these skills.
Traditional ELL was focused on the acquisition of the language but no real practical application of what was acquired. Through the Rise program we acquire the language through various means and delivery i.e. readers, textbooks, interactive software
We show our understanding by demonstrating within our Practice books and practical lessons in software
We apply that learning through digital and print based reading programs
We analyze, evaluate and create through the use of writing books, homework books and project based learning in teams
