The aim of this paper is to demonstrate specifically designed teaching tools for linguistics courses at the university level. These tools are a part of research whose aim is to investigate the positive effects of the higher order cognitive functions on the mastery of the subject matter. The tools are constructed to suit the needs of English major students in the course of English morphology. Primary purpose of the tools is to stimulate higher order cognitive functions, such as analysis, synthesis and critical thinking. Their usage is planned for the practice classes where students’ participation is of crucial importance for the mastery of the course. The paper will present several such instruments designed for different topics, present their cognitive demand, design, instructions for usage and other important aspects of their administration, as well as the overall benefit for the mastery of the course.
