The Best Resources For Helping Teachers Use Bloom’s Taxonomy In The Classroom

However, if you believe a recent survey of visits to 23,000 U.S. classrooms, the higher-order thinking skills it’s ideally designed to promote doesn’t get much use. And I can understand why. It’s easy to get caught-up in the day-to-day work involved in teaching a class or multiple classes, and it’s easy to fall into the trap of doing the “usual stuff” and not “think out of the box.” I thought it might be useful to share in a “The Best…” list the resources that help me try to use Bloom’s Taxonomy in my classroom. There may very well be resources out there that do a far better job of explaining the Taxonomy and how to use it. I personally try to use Bloom’s Taxonomy in two ways. In addition, I try to use Bloom’s to help me formulate my own lessons. Here are my choices for The Best Resources For Helping Teachers Use Bloom’s Taxonomy In The Classroom (most, though not all, are materials prepared by different school districts):

A Model of Learning Objectives. A statement of a learning objective contains a verb (an action) and an object (usually a noun).

A Model of Learning Objectives

The verb generally refers to [actions associated with] the intended cognitive process. The object generally describes the knowledge students are expected to acquire or construct. (Anderson and Krathwohl, 2001, pp. 4–5) The cognitive process dimension represents a continuum of increasing cognitive complexity—from remember to create. Anderson and Krathwohl identify 19 specific cognitive processes that further clarify the bounds of the six categories (Table 1). (Table 1 adapted from Anderson and Krathwohl, 2001, pp. 67–68.) The knowledge dimension represents a range from concrete (factual) to abstract (metacognitive) (Table 2).

In this space wallpaper, an airplane appears unusually large against the smallest full moon of the year. This full moon's rather puny October appearance is 12.3 percent smaller than when it came into view in its most super-sized form back in March of this year. The moon seems to change size to us because it has an elliptical orbit. Cannabis. Ancestry. Map of the problematique. Colossus. Kathycasey. Utilitaires travail organisation. Artra. CADworks.

Autodesk is giving away free software - New Promotions starting 5/15/11 through 7/15/11 - "Autodesk Reach Higher Promotion" - The Game Changer.

Luke posted about this a few days ago and only because his reseller, who will probably get in a lot of trouble for preleasing information, so let's make this official.

Autodesk is giving away free software - New Promotions starting 5/15/11 through 7/15/11 - "Autodesk Reach Higher Promotion" - The Game Changer

Autodesk is starting a couple of new promotions starting May 16th running through July 15th. Why July 15th? Because you have a tendancy to wait until the last minute and if it ended on July 31st, it would be chaotic to process all of the orders. Here's the deal for the main promotion. I'll post about the LT and older software promotions later because if you're reading this blog, you don't give a hoot about LT or have AutoCAD 14. If you are currently on subscription, you can migrate your software to a Building Design Suite Premium at no charge. If you have questions, contact me (www.revit3d.com/g) and I'll help you any way I can. This offer recognizes the loyalty of Autodesk Subscription customers, and provides an exclusive benefit as Autodesk transitions its product offerings to Suites. Customers with: Standard: n/a. Bim.
