Bloom's Taxonomy chart for literacy - helpful when planning for a specific domain, teaching critical thinking for students. Supports INTASC Standard #7 Planning for Instruction: The teacher plans instruction that supports every student in meeting rigorous learning goals by drawing upon knowledge of content areas, curriculum, cross-disciplinary skills, and pedagogy, as well as knowledge of learners and the community context.
Best resources for helping teachers use bloom's taxonomy from Larry Ferlazzo's website. Lots of links.
Another take-off on Bloom's Taxonomy... Critical thinking skills are what we want our students to develop. Without these skills we can not guarantee a sound and effective education that will enable our kids to seamlessly blend in tomorrow 's job market. Therefore, it is our responsibility as teachers and educators to fully understand the components of this set of skills in order to better focus on them in our instruction.
Great Verbs to help explain Blooms..... and create activities for higher level thinking skills in the classroom.
