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 will also access Plants Cafe and other plant-oriented websites for use in developing lessons. 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. Participants should bring a journal article or portion of text that they would like to incorporate into their H.O.T. Skills Wheel™ lesson, and may bring colored pencils, markers or crayons (6 light colors), other art or music supplies(guitar, if you'd like to use it in your lesson, for example), and a folder. Participants should be prepared to purchase booklets cost $12.00 each at the workshop.
