Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy Verbs

Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy Verbs
Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts 
 
Bloom's Taxonomy is a classification of learning objectives within education proposed in 1956 by a committee of educators chaired by Benjamin Bloom who also edited the first volume of the standard text, Taxonomy of educational objectives: the classification of educational goals (referred to as simply "the Handbook" below). Although named for Bloom, the publication followed a series of conferences from 1949 to 1953, which were designed to improve communication between educators on the design of curricula and examinations.

It refers to a classification of the different objectives that educators set for students (learning objectives). Bloom's Taxonomy divides educational objectives into three "domains": Cognitive, Affective, and Psychomotor (sometimes loosely described as knowing/head, feeling/heart and doing/hands respectively). Within the domains, learning at the higher levels is dependent on having attained prerequisite knowledge and skills at lower levels. A goal of Bloom's Taxonomy is to motivate educators to focus on all three domains, creating a more holistic form of education. source wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloom%27s_Taxonomy

  1. I was searching for revised bloom's taxonomy verbs and stumbled upon your blog - SO glad I did! You are quite an inspriation! I've only just read the sidebars and a few posts but have joined your site and am interested in your ideas. I teach a reading course in a small college, and literacy is my full background as an educator. Even more so, I am very interested in school reform. Our system is broken and needs reform thinkers to turn it around. I look forward to checking in with you here regularly!

    Keep up the awesome work!
