Um-bloom-ra Bloom’s Taxonomy

Over the years, I have created a number of Bloom’s Taxonomy pictures to hang in my classroom for students to refer to. My Bloomin’ Peacock was such a hit with you all, I thought I would start sharing the others I’ve made. Today I revived one that I created for my classroom and added the digital version (again the digital tools displayed relate directly to the Treasures reading curriculum). 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). (Table 2 adapted from Anderson and Krathwohl, 2001, p. 46.).

Cogs of the Cognitive Processes Option 1 I was recently reflecting on the triangular shape the Bloom's taxonomies utilize. Since the cognitive processes are meant to be used when necessary, and any learner goes up and down the categories as they create new knowledge, I was thinking another type of image might be more explanatory.Here is my draft of the idea of the "interlocking of the cognitive processes" or the "Cogs of Cognition".
