Title: Bloom’s Taxonomy
Introduction: Bloom’s taxonomy provides an important framework for us to use to focus on Higher Order thinking. By providing a hierarchy of levels, this taxonomy can assist teachers in designing performance tasks, crafting questions for conferring with students, and providing feedback on student work.
The Assignment:
Explain how using Bloom’s Taxonomy can encourage a child’s creative thinking. How does this theory increase the cognitive thinking of young children? The early childhood teacher must help students move up the ladder to higher level thought. Bloom’s taxonomy helps teachers plan activities that develop different ways of thinking and learning.
Grading Criteria:
First paragraph explaining what Bloom’s Taxonomy (5-7 sentences each) is – 20 points
Second paragraph explaining how Bloom’s increases creative thinking – 20 points
Third paragraph share what types of questions will you be asking your 3 and 4 year old students using the Bloom’s hierarchy – 25 points
