The Effect of Higher Order Thinking Skills on Student Behavior and Classroom Management in the Urban Classroom.

Teaching higher order thinking skills is essential to an educated public in a democratic society. Public schools are encouraged to teach higher order thinking while also teaching content. Science teaching is no exception. Classroom experience has shown that as tasks requiring higher order thinking are implemented, adverse classroom behaviors may increase and positive behaviors may decrease. This paper will present data on science classroom activities involving higher order thinking and behaviors occurring. It also looks at the tasks of science education, and how they relate to higher order thinking, in terms of the resulting behaviors in an urban classroom setting.
