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.
HOT Blocks are a creative intervention model where cross curricular collaborations between grade-level teachers and arts classroom teachers support students in Scientific Research Based Interventions (SRBI) in their learning of language arts and math content through the arts. The outcome has been positive with more students being exited from remedial support services.
This unique approach, developed by teachers and administrators at Samuel Staples HOT school, provides collaborative partnership opportunities between arts and non-arts classroom teachers and benefits all students, not only students in need of intervention.
