Bloom’s Taxonomy: Bloomin’ Peacock Tomorrow I am doing a training on the Treasures Supplement that I created over the summer. Most of the supplemental suggestions fall into the bottom two tiers of Bloom’s Taxonomy (Remember and Understand). I want to show teachers that just because these activities help students practice basic skills and remember and understand, there are SO many more options that will reach the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy! I created the Bloomin’ Peacock to show teachers the Blooms Taxonomy break down and the Bloomin’ digital Peacock that shows how the digital tools in the supplement break down. Below are the tools listed in my Bloomin’ Digital Peacock Bloomin' Digital Peacock Remember: BBC Skillwise- Spelling City- Starfall- Discovery Streaming- Lexipedia- YouTube- Gamegoo- PBS Kids- Apply:

Express 7.13 - Are You Meeting Your Students' Needs for Love and Belonging? Are You Meeting Your Students' Needs for Love and Belonging? Muriel Rand "Ignore him—he just wants attention!" How many times have you heard a teacher say something like this? Some children, because of a lack of social-emotional skills and competence, are hard to interact with. Notice what the consequences are when children act out inappropriately. So wouldn't it make sense to ignore these behaviors to stop reinforcing them? Schedule time to spend with the child. Meeting the strong attention needs of children not only helps them socially but also supports them academically. The next time you experience the frustration of a child seeking attention, remember that breaking the cycle of negativity by meeting that need for love and belonging will create long-term opportunities for academic success while also helping you find more joy in teaching.

Bloom's Revised Taxonomy In the 1990's, a former student of Bloom, Lorin Anderson, revised Bloom's Taxonomy and published this- Bloom's Revised Taxonomy in 2001.Key to this is the use of verbs rather than nouns for each of the categories and a rearrangement of the sequence within the taxonomy. Bloom's Revised Taxonomy Sub Categories Each of the categories or taxonomic elements has a number of key verbs associated with it Lower Order Thinking Skills (LOTS) Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) The elements cover many of the activities and objectives but they do not address the new objectives presented by the emergence and integration of Information and Communication Technologies into the classroom and the lives of our students.
