Developing Questions for Critical Thinking
“Education must be increasingly concerned about the fullest development of all children and youth, and it will be the responsibility of the schools to seek learning conditions which will enable each individual to reach the highest level of learning possible.” Benjamin Bloom Handbook on Formative and Summative Evaluation of Student Learning Bloom’s original taxonomy (developed in the 1950's) divided the way people learn into three domains: cognitive, affective, and psychomotor. In the 1990's Lorin Anderson, a former student of Bloom revised the original cognitive domain. The original Bloom's taxonomy is still relevant, but under the new revisions the six major categories of the cognitive domain were changed from noun to verb format and some subcategories were reorganized. The revised taxonomy is preferred by some educators as a more authentic tool for curriculum planning, instructional delivery, and assessment.
