Having the Blooms as a bulletin board is not silly - my twins will be jrs in HS this coming year, and some of their past teachers have had Blooms (and some question examples) where the students could see. The earliest I can remember was their 6th grade teacher. She was one of the best they've had so far. Now, they know where they are on the Blooms levels when asking and answering subject area questions, and they know what questions and answers to shoot for. Altho I don't have Blooms posted (yet), it gives the students modelling towards various ways and levels to think about art or whatever subject matter they are learning. Since thematic learning is a current trend, it's kinda cool for the kids to see that we think about art, math, science, literature, social studies, etc. in similar ways.

I have to have Blooms as a bulletin board/sign in my
room. I am attaching a word doc (sorry to MAC people)
of one the ways I tried to use this productively in my
I blew it up and students used it as a format for
writing an essay and also for discussion. (I changed
it several times during the semester) When students
had to write, they were required to write 3-5
sentences for each level. I got some fantastic papers
from students who really didn't seem all that
interested during discussion or production.
I am curious if anyone else has to have Bloom's
visible in the classroom and what are some creative
ways this requirement has been handled?
Please inspire me- I think this is really silly.
