bloom s taxonomy
Bloom’s Taxonomy
  • In 1956, an educational psychologist named Benjamin Bloom developed a taxonomy (system of classification) to categorize the goals of educators.
  • According to Bloom’s Taxonomy, human thinking can be broken into six hierarchical (ranked in order of importance) categories.

example level questions
Example Level Questions
  • Knowledge – What color is an apple?
  • Comprehension – What fruit leaves your fingers sticky?
  • Application – Can you think of a way to peel an orange without getting your fingers sticky?
  • Analysis – In what ways are apples and oranges similar and different?
  • Synthesis - If you were going to create a new fruit combining the apple and orange, what would it look and taste like?
  • Evaluation – Which fruit is better for you and why?

Each level builds on the levels before it, and prepares us for the levels after it. We can’t jump to one without climbing past the others!

levels of questioning
Levels of Questioning
  • How does Bloom’s Taxonomy help us?
    • Bloom’s Taxonomy helps us by showing us what level we are thinking on when asking or answering questions.
    • When we know what level we are on, we can better develop appropriate answers and push ourselves to higher levels.
    • We can use Bloom’s Taxonomy to generate (make) questions to show comprehension and push ourselves to THINK.

If I know a question is a “knowledge” level question, I know the answer will be a fact I must recall.

If I know a question is a “synthesis” level question, I know the answer must give my opinion to be supported by facts.

when do we use this
When do we use this?
  • As we read
  • During class discussion (teacher asks students, students ask students, students ask teacher)
  • On assessments
as we read
As we read…
  • Ms. RS will stop and ask for a question at a certain level.
  • Raise your hand if you want to ask a critical thinking question – say what level it is before you ask it.
  • By the end, students should have a list of questions – at least THREE at each level.
practice
Practice
  • INDEPENDENTLY complete the short answer questions on your guided notes
  • AS A GROUP (every member contributes!)
    • Generate two new questions per level on the events of chapter 12.
    • Write your answers on ONE sheet of paper, clearly labeled with the names of all group members.
    • Separate questions into levels so it is clear which level each question belongs with.

Both due at the end of the period!

level one

Answer in complete sentences! Eliminate one question from each category.
