Learning Inventories When teachers know how their students learn best, they can design instruction that benefits all students.

Several learning inventories are included in the Getting to Know Students Packet on the main page. 25 Question Stems Framed Around Bloom's Taxonomy 25 Question Stems Framed Around Bloom’s Taxonomy While critical thinking is a foundation rather than a brick, how you build that foundation depends on the learning process itself: exposing students to new thinking and promoting interaction with that thinking in a gradual release of responsibility approach. Question stems can be a powerful part of that process no matter where the learner is.
