I’m sure many of you are familiar with Bloom’s Taxomony which attempts to classify levels of intellectual behavior. While there are now many versions of Bloom’s Taxonomy, the image above uses six classifications across the top of the chart. As you move from the left edge toward the right, the intellectual behaviors are becoming more sophisticated.

On the left side of this chart is an arrow that certainly made me think about whether I was communication TO my students or WITH my students.

And the chart itself? It has many ways we communicate in writing; be it teacher-student, student-teacher, or student-student.

Overall, which types of written communication do YOU use, in YOUR online classes?
