Evan-Moor Launches New 2018 Critical Thinking Title

Daily Higher-Order Thinking provides daily activities that build and grow students’ problem-solving skills.

MONTEREY, CA (January 5, 2018)—To be successful in academics, careers, and life, children need to exercise and develop problem-solving skills. Just as we teach reading, writing, and math on a daily basis, critical and creative thinking should be applied to students’ instruction on a daily basis.

Evan-Moor Educational Publishers, a leader in PreK–8 supplemental educational materials, has just released a new critical thinking series: Daily Higher-Order Thinking! The critical thinking exercises provide teachers a tool to help their students develop critical and creative thinking skills.

Daily Higher-Order Thinking is designed to provide teachers with a simple and effective method to improve their students’ thinking skills. The activities provide students opportunities to practice behavioral verbs at the higher end of Bloom’s Taxonomy. The daily practice allows students to integrate their learning and make deeper connections between their learning and the real world.” says Lisa Vitarisi Mathews, executive editor at Evan-Moor Educational Publishers.

Daily Higher-Order Thinking offers 30 weeks of 20-minute practice lessons that help students apply higher order thinking skills across subject areas. A huge timesaver for teachers, this series provides quick mini lessons that teach students how to use behavioral verbs to solve real-world problems and fuel their creativity. The exercises develop students’ problem-solving skills in engaging formats such as logic and visual puzzles, brainteasers, creative writing, picture comparison, and word play.

Use Daily Higher-Order Thinking for warm-up exercises, extension activities, early finisher tasks, and small-group centers to develop your students’ critical and creative thinking skills. An answer key provides sample responses for each day’s activities. Each full-page activity for Monday–Friday gives students an opportunity to practice higher-order thinking skills in the context of a different curriculum area.
