Higher Order Thinking Skills & 21st Century Skills

The essential skills needed to be successful in the future go beyond basic literacy. Students must also be able to read critically, write persuasively, think and reason logically, solve complex problems and other such skills, such as those defined by the Partnership for 21st century skills.
Research is clear that instruction that builds upon and encourages higher- order thinking skills results in greater levels of student learning.
Curriculum-Framing Questions encourage students to use higher-order thinking skills, help students fully understand essential concepts, and provide a structure for organizing factual information.
How do you think we can facilitate our students to inculcate such skills and thinking level so that they can face the challenges of world?
