Registration for 30-hour course: Integrating Higher-order Thinking Skills into Literature Teaching - Advanced Course The program for Integrating Higher-order Thinking Skills into Literature Teaching has been running in our educational system in Israel since 2008. Since the program has been adapted in light of feedback from the field and based on the recent “Meaningful Learning” reforms in the Ministry of Education, it is important to refresh teachers’ training regarding the high school literature program.
