Abstract: Higher-order thinking, Engaged Learning, Authentic Learning, and Technology integration combine to form HEAT to boost the rigor of instruction to impact K-12 student learning. Through thorough examination of current research on each component, a HEAT Framework or instrument was developed for the purpose of assessing instruction and lesson plans of pre-service and advanced teacher education students. This article presents the theoretical background for the instrument as well as discussion of the levels and approaches for using the instrument.
