Bloom’s Taxomony and the Verb Wheel

How cool is this!!

We probably all know about Bloom’s Taxonomy – a classification of learning objectives from (what I’ll call) lower-order skills to higher skills. While there are many versions of Bloom’s Taxonomy, here’s a simple one for reference:

Bloom's TaxomonyAnother way to represent the levels of Bloom’s taxonomy is with a wheel. You’ll notice in the one below that even the names of the categories are different than the example above.  Even with that, the ring below is terrific. Not only are the levels of the taxonomy around the center of the wheel, there are suggested verbs in the center (orange) ring, and then suggested student activities in the outer (green) ring!
