Have you experienced Bloom's taxonomy in the past? If so, how?Only since studying at Monash in the Masters degree have I consciously experienced the higher order thinking of Bloom's taxonomy, e.g. ‘synthesize’ and ‘create,’ including creating a Weebly site. Consider the different approaches you might use during your Curriculum Investigation to assess children's learning.If time allowed, I would use formative (FOR), summative (OF) and AS assessment for the Curriculum Investigation, preferring the FOR and AS options. “All children benefit when assessment reflects a whole-child approach, providing a holistic view of learning and development. Early childhood professionals use a range of assessment tools, processes and approaches to build on prior learning, avoid duplication and add value” (Flottman, 2011, p.1).
Introduction. Bloom's taxonomy was developed to provide a common language for teachers to discuss and exchange learning and assessment methods. ... The goal of an educator's using Bloom's taxonomy is to encourage higher-order thought in their students by building up from lower-level cognitive skills.

I have learned that Bloom’s Taxonomy is a way to motivate the educators to focus on the three domains, the cognitive, affective and psychomotor. In every domain there are some skills that the student must undergo. The cognitive domain revolves around knowledge, comprehension, and critical thinking on a particular topic. There are six levels in the taxonomy wherein it moves from the lowest to the highest order process. These six levels are the knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, evaluation, and synthesis. On the affective domain, it describes the way people react emotionally and their ability to feel other living things emotion. It has five levels which begin from the lowest level or the receiving to the highest level or the characterizing. The other levels are the responding, valuing, and organizing. The last domain is the psychomotor domain. It describes the ability to physically manipulate a tool or instrument like a hand or a hammer. Psychomotor objectives usually focus on change and/or development in behavior and/or skills. Bloom did not create subcategories for skills in psychomotor but other educators created their own taxonomies. It consist the perception, set, guided response, mechanism, complex overt response, adaptation, and origination. Bloom’s taxonomy serves as the backbone of many teaching philosophies, in particular those that learn more toward skills rather than content. Bloom’s taxonomy can be used as a teaching tool to help balance assessment and evaluative questions in class, assignments and texts to ensure all orders of thinking are exercised in student’s learning.
I have learned so many things in this topic that I can apply in my teaching years. I find Bloom’s Taxonomy helpful especially when I reach the peak of my profession.
