THE FIVE PRIMARY SETS OR GROUPS OF CATEGORIES ARE COGNITIVE MEMORY, CONVERGENT THINKING, EVALUATIVE THINKING, DIVERGENT THINKING, AND THE ROUTINE CATEGORY WHICH INCLUDES NOT ONLY THE TYPICAL TEACHER AND STUDENT MANEUVERINGS THAT CONSTITUTE THE FAMILAR CLASSROOM SCENE BUT ALSO CERTAIN TYPES OF DISCUSSION BEHAVIORS.

UNDER "ROUTINE" ARE INCLUDED THE TERMS--MANAGEMENT, STRUCTURING, VERDICT, AGREEMENT, SELF-REFERENCE, MUDDLED, AND HUMOR. UNDER "COGNITIVE-MEMORY" ARE INCLUDED--RECAPITULATION, CLARIFICATION, AND FACTUAL. UNDER "CONVERGENT THINKING" ARE INCLUDED THE TERMS--TRANSLATION, EXPLANATION, ASSOCIATION, AND CONCLUSION.
