Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) is inevitably important to develop students’ critical and creative thinking skills in 21st century era. HOT skills are the cognitive ability to analyze, evaluate, and create some topic inside or outside the classroom. This case study was conducted to explore the impact of using HOT skills and investigate student’s perception towards its use in EFL writing classrooms. This study involved five students in the third grade in junior high school. They were asked to independently write recount texts with similar theme. Students’ worksheet and interviews are conducted and then analyzed by using Bloom’s taxonomy. The findings eventually show that that stage “analyze” mostly appears in written form and the students felt actively involved in learning activities, developed their writing skills, and experienced learner autonomy and problem-solving abilities. The study recommends that HOT skills have a positive result for EFL students and be explicitly infused in the teaching and learning of writing activities in EFL classrooms.
