I really enjoyed this task. As a teacher, it is important that I understand Bloom’s Taxonomy. Why? So that student’s can take on an increasing level of the cognitive load as the lesson progresses. Let’s take a look at one of Glencoe’s Algebra 1 textbook.
The lesson can be found at http://www.glencoe.com/sec/math/algebra/algebra1/algebra1_05/extra_examples/chapter3/lesson3_1.pdf
The lesson asks students to complete the following 5 tasks:
1. Translate sentences into equations
2. Use the 4 step plan
3. Write a formula
4. Translate equations into sentence
5. Write a problem
This is a good example of Bloom’s Taxonomy because the lesson begins with Understanding and progresses to Creation. There’s a little back and forth in the middle, but I think it is efficient and allows the student to show a fairly good comprehension of the material. What do you think?
