This report describes Project HOT, which is designed to create knowledge about teaching higher order thinking skills across ability levels of African-American students enrolled in urban schools. The report states that three activities are central to the overall purpose of the program: (1) training students to think critically and creatively; (2) designing a model of strategic thinking; and (3) publishing and sharing knowledge gained. Sections of the report describe the program's goals, activities, budget, organizational profile, consultants, outcomes, and present a strategic teaching model. A position paper ("Knowledge as design: Learning for the 21st Century") is attached, as well as a 21-item bibliography. (RS)
