Since higher order thinking skills have been targeted as one of the instructional objectives at Indonesian schools, investigating to what extent the pre-service English teachers are familiar with the concept of the higher order thinking skills in ELT is necessary. The current study was conducted to investigate to what extent the pre-service English teachers are familiar with the concept of higher order thinking skills in English language teaching. A survey research was employed which encompass 109 respondents. The finding of the current study reveals that the familiarity of the pre-service English teachers with the concepts of the higher order thinking skills in ELT is at the moderate level. It indicates that most pre-service English teachers are quite familiar with the concept of the higher order thinking skills but their knowledge is not deep. The implication to the teaching of English language may be that the teaching of the higher order thinking skills are not fully infused to the English language teaching. Therefore, future researchers are recommended to investigate the English teachers’ practice dealing with the promotion of the higher order thinking skills.

High-Order Thinking skills have been a trend in recent years. Researchers studied on aspects of HOTS. Some studied on how to teach it to students while some are on how to assess it. However, the implementation of HOTS is strongly affected by the teacher’s beliefs –including knowledge, beliefs, and practices (Borg, 2001). The present study analyzes the teacher’s beliefs on HOTS-based assessment. It uses narrative inquiry as the research method. The data are gotten from the participant’s interview and document analysis –test items constructed by the participant. The data are then analyzed using short story analysis. The results show that the participants occupied the knowledge of HOTS-based assessment mainly through independent study. She believes that HOTS-based assessment can be applied in High School level. Furthermore, it gives benefits for the students. She practices HOTS-based assessment in her class by constructing HOTS items. However, some English teachers have not implemented it in their class.

Together with the development of technology and knowledge in English Language Teaching, teaching model develops variously. There is no single model of teaching meets all the students’ needs, especially in Islamic higher education institution. Content-Based Instruction (CBI) offers a teaching model which integrates the teaching of subject matters and language skills in a class. The findings of the present research reveal the benefits of the implementation of CBI cover cognitive and affective aspect. The knowledge of the Islamic contents and foreign languages increases and the behavior gets better. However, the more substantial finding is that the implementation of CBI eases the burden of the lecturers in doing two main tasks, namely, teaching (internalizing) Islamic values and teaching language skills.
