Bloom's Taxonomy


Bloom's Taxonomy was developed by Benjamin Bloom in the 1950’s as a way of defining different levels of thinking from lower order to higher order. Bloom’s Taxonomy has been used by educators for the past five decades as a planning tool, specifically in framing student objectives. During the 1990’s, Lorin Anderson, a former student of Bloom) reviewed and revised Bloom’s Taxonomy with updated language for the six levels and including specific key words and questions to assist teachers with planning and instruction.
