Bloom’s Taxonomy

As we walk through classes we are very focused on the engagement levels of our students. In most cases, we will find that all students are often on-task and appear engaged, but the question we ask as we look closely at the students is “what type of activities are they engaged in?”  We refer to Bloom’s Taxonomy to evaluate the type of learning activities students are engaged in.  We are looking for students to move beyond the lower level thinking skills to higher order thinking skills.

Discussion Question:  Please share with your colleagues examples of classroom activities you have had students participate in so far this year that has moved beyond understanding and remembering?
