H.O.T.S.® Higher Order Thinking Skills PHOTO: Successful student HOTS® Celebrates 24 years of success with half-a-million disadvantaged students in grades 4-8!

About Us

HOTS was developed in 1980 by Dr. Stanley Pogrow, Professor of Education at the University of Arizona, and one of the leading national experts on school reform. Dr. Pogrow discovered that the primary learning need of Title I and LD students in grades 4-8 was not content remediation, but the development of the types of thinking skills needed to process the more complex and integrative classroom content found in grades 4-8.

Dr. Stanley Pogrow is one of the foremost national experts of school reform and education policy. He is a Professor of Education at the University of Arizona and is the author of more than 90 articles on school reform/improvement. He has also been a professor at the University of Illinois, Seattle University (endowed chair), USC (endowed chair), and the University of New Mexico.
