Bloom's Taxanomy

Putting Bloom's Taxanomy into practice in class rooms is very effective in the process of developing students thinking. There are six categories in the thinking process. They are organized from the lower order thinking skills to the higher order thinking skills as follows:
  • Remembering- Recognising, listing, describing, identifying, retrieving, naming.
  • Understanding- Interpreting, summarising, inferring, paraphrasing, classifying, exemplifying.
  • Applying- Implementing, carrying out, using, executing.
  • Analysing- Comparing, organising, deconstructing, attributing, outlining, finding.
  • Evaluating- Checking, hypothesising, critiquing, experimenting, judging, testing.
  • Creating-  Designing, constructing, planning, producing, inventing, devising, making.
From my point of view, the most important thing here is to have the ability and patience to put those element into practice. The result would be fabulous
