Bloom’s Taxonomy divides the way people learn into three domains. One of these is the cognitive domain which emphasizes intellectual outcomes. This domain further divides into categories which are arranged progressively from the lowest level of thinking, simple recall; to the highest, evaluating information.
The keywords and questions that are found in Improve the Critical Thinking of Your Students can be used to develop all levels of thinking within the cognitive domain. The results will be improved attention to detail, increased comprehension and expanded problem solving skills.
Use the key words as guides to structuring questions and tasks. Finish with questions on content appropriate to the learner. Key words and questions are included for each level: Knowledge, Comprehension, Application, Analysis, Synthesis, Evaluation.
All in all, work to challenge your students and help them grow.
