A HOTS trained teacher can work with up to 10 students at a time. A teacher and paraprofessional can work with up to 14.
In the schoolwide version, the regular classroom/content teacher teaches HOTS to half the class and a HOTS specialist teaches the other half.
The smaller group size for the 35-40 minute HOTS periods are funded out of Federal and state funds for the Title I, Special Ed, school improvement, after-school programs, etc.
Select Teachers for HOTS who are:
- Quick thinking
- Excited to get kids to talk
