- I really find all the action verbs in BT super usefull for lesson planning because they lead your directly to select the aims while using the three domains in this constructivist learning proccess and since one is already thinking on the group profile and what activity to develop, the ages and learning styles as well as levels are being considered (one won’t make fisrt grade learners to write a hip hop song, for isntance).
I found there’s a revised version of the BT online; my activities were done following its patterns. There are several updated pages, blogs and videos with BT in them; so it’s all in the web if you want to get high tech and modern with it.
I didn’t hear about BT until now with TKT and Ellen; I have been using HOTS without knowing it and getting to desing lessons with the proccess mentioned without being concious of it, so it´s really pleasent to find it all together with so much support videos, images, ideas,a ctivities to apply (putting order into planning).
- I’d like to share a link I found with questions that helped me alot while designing my activity with Bloom’s taxonomy:
- As I understood, Bloom’s taxonomy is the constructivist process of learning through 3 areas or domains: cognitive (knowledge, mental), pshychomotor (skills) and affective (attitudes).
We start from the knowledge to creative steps in this taxonomy; it’s a about constructing what we knew into a product; therefore they mention HOTS and LOTS.
LOTS are knowledge, comprehension and application; and HOTS are Analysis, Shynthesis and Evaluation; and after having them all done and completed, then we can create.
Note. I pasted this image with the originalBloom’s version and the revised one:
This is a poster used by Elementary teachers and his/her students inside the classroom (lovely simple and creative design):
Please check this out (to enlarge, print and make a chart in the classroom for students as well as teachers to use it whenever is needed) and speccialy with all the questions for each domain for the teacher before planning:
And I found this video with BT explained very well by children about music:
And then just for amusing and if you’re fan of Pirates of Caribean (or examples with movies):
