  5. 5.  Think of the theme you are teaching, and write two or three questions. For example, if you are working on a book about friendship, “What things do you like to do with your friends?” and “What happens when your friends do not like to do what you like to do?” Prepare prompts to help your students elaborate their questions “Can you tell me more about that?” “What makes you think that?” You can also encourage higher order thinking by sharing students’ responses (covering students’ names) and asking them how to improve it.How do I add more higherthinking questions to my lessons?
  6. 6.  Don’t be discouraged if students struggle with answering/asking higher order thinking questions. It takes students some time to adapt to higher expectations.How do I add more higherthinking questions to my lessons?
