Re: blooms taxonomy

I have worked toward the same goal. I have also used Blooms with students
emphasizing one or two levels at a time, with more diverse examples of verbs. In
other words, opinion (if we were working at the top of the triangle) may be
described, as one of the 6 levels, a little more descriptively as 'compares,
consludes, contracts, criticizes, justifies, supports, states, appraises,
discriminates, summarizes, recommends, rates, decides, selects.' If not offered these
as suggested avenues of discussion, my students offer 'opinions' that are not
very useful for discussion.
I got my list from Universal Teaching Strategies, but perhaps other Bloom
resources exist and are better.
I projected the verbs during discussion and writing, and felt funny about
whether I was doing something wrong! Thanks for your post. Your triangle is
going up on my bulletin board too! I think it pulls it all together very well.
