Bloom’s Taxonomy

Bloom’s Taxonomy is a useful tool to use when thinking about questioning techniques used when teaching. This is often presented in the form of a ladder.

The image below takes this a step futher and considers the different elements of Bloom’s Taxonomy and links them to different teaching activities. This is a useful tool because not only does it instantly provide an easily accessible list of teaching activities to choose from when planning a lesson, but also classifies those activities. This would mean that  to ensure a balanced range of tasks in a unit of work tasks could be selected from different segments of the wheel.
