I agree with you suggestions on how to promote the HOTS which are indeed good but we must not totally rule out the LOTS. For instance, asking children to memorise quotations or poems could instill lifelong learning which are intrinsic in nature. Children may learn to be more polite and kind and loving due to inspiring words they have memorised.
