“HOT” Questions

Higher Order Thinking

How do we use questions to guide instruction and challenge our students?


Bloom's Taxonomy

New Version

Old Version

In 1956, Benjamin Bloom headed a group of educational psychologists who developed a classification of levels of intellectual behavior important in learning. During the 1990's a new group of cognitive psychologists, lead by Lorin Anderson (a former student of Bloom), updated the taxonomy to reflect relevance to 21st century work. The two graphics show the revised and original Taxonomy. Note the change from nouns to verbs associated with each level.

Note that the top two levels are essentially exchanged from the traditional to the new version.


The NEW Bloom’s Taxonomy
