Higher order thinking skills are more than just memorizing facts. It is the ability to take what they know and
apply their knowledge (both past and current) in a convention of ways. As it was brought out in the article (Tankersley,
2005), higher order thinking skills are not evidently taught as well as the other reading skills. Teachers tend to focus
more on a student developing these skills as more and more students are missing key components in their overall
reading comprehension skills.
