Developing Learning Centers Utilizing Bloom's Taxonomy for Secondary Students [and] Blooming for Vertical and Horizontal Expansion or Creative Obfuscations to Confuse and Bewilder Your Friends: A Student Guide to Bloom's Taxonomy.
Bull, Kay Sather; Land, Imogene
Intended for secondary teachers in rural areas, the paper examines ways to implement a learning center approach to meet a range of students' needs, including mainstreamed special needs, students, regular students, and gifted and talented students. The first section considers B. Bloom's Taxonomy as a basis for developing learning centers. Definitions of each level of the taxonomy are presented along with examples of questions and objectives which illustrate each level (knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation). Then 83 ideas for products are offered. The second section discusses the nature of giftedness and talent and covers differentiation of instruction, student contracts, and responsibilities of the regular classroom teacher to the gifted child. The final section addresses concerns for using the approach with special needs students. Suggestions in this section include ways to adjust the work time for the mainstreamed student and the use of peers in the regular classroom. The student guide entitled "Blooming for Vertical and Horizontal Expansion or Creative Obfuscations to Confuse and Bewilder Your Friends" aims to assist the student in writing learning units for other students. It contains exercises and questions related to Bloom's Taxonomy. (CL)
