HOT Bowl (Higher-Order Thinking) prepares students to think together about essential questions. The goal of a HOT Bowl is to engage diverse students in collaboration to work together on big ideas in their class curriculum. Students participating may be from the same classroom or from different classes and even different schools. For example, a history teacher and a communication arts teacher would be able to collaborate and challenge their students to find a way to creatively display an informative historical event or develop answers to a question that relates to both courses.
