Here’s another poster to help get you thinking about how you can apply Bloom’s higher-order thinking skills with your children. This poster shows the segments of an orange with each segment relating to a thinking skill and some helpful verbs to serve as prompts. While there are many more verbs that we could have added, we felt that including just seven in each segment would make them easier to remember (For more information, see Miller’s paper “ The Magical Number Seven, Plus or Minus Two : Some Limits on Our Capacity for Processing Information .” We thought it would be interesting to depict the verbs in a circular form as opposed to a hierarchical list, given that these skills don’t often occur in isolation and are interconnected. We went through several concepts including a wheel, a pie, and an apple, but somehow the orange seemed to work best when we put everything together.
