How to implement
Bloom's in the classroom
- Key Verbs in assessment (Refer to wheel)
- Teach Bloom's to the students!
- Write it into your learning objectives
Students are expected to reach these higher level thinking processes but are conditioned all throughout their schooling to basically memorize and regurgitate facts for tests.
Bloom's has become more widely recognized in schools since accreditation has come into play but up until the last five years, many teachers have failed to get students to the higher levels of thinking and understanding. It is our job as the next generation of educators to strive to meet these levels and provide an easier path for students to accomplish them.
