Hits and Hots help students to:

  • Construct meaning from text and other sources.

The strategies meet the challenge of teaching in the twenty-first century by teaching general student capabilities such as literacy and thinking skills, self-management skills, teamwork and social competence skills and ethical and intercultural understandings.
