Higher Order Thinking (HOT) Schools is a program of the Connecticut State Department of Economic & Community Development, Office of the Arts. ©2015 HOT Schools™
Site designed and hosted by WORX.
ECHOs (Enhanced Curricular HOT Opportunities) are designated time blocks which engage the whole school, often in multi-aged groupings, in active learning.
ECHOs engage students in real world learning experiences in which students apply advanced content and methods to develop products and services that have an impact on intended audiences. ECHOs are student-driven and they facilitate higher order thinking by providing students with opportunities to apply their interests, knowledge, thinking skills, and creative ideas to self-selected problems or areas of study.
