The New Taxonomy of Educational Objectives
Marzano, Robert J.; Kendall, John S.
Marzano's Taxonomy--the most current and comprehensive guide in 50 years to define the new standard for education--is a resource for all directors of curriculum and instruction, directors of staff development, principals, and teachers. Developed by Robert Marzano and John S. Kendall, internationally recognized experts in the development and improvement of standards for education, this field-tested and proven reference contains the most current research on the nature of knowledge and cognition and a reflection of the movement to standards-based education. Based on three domains of knowledge: information, mental procedures, and psychomotor procedures; and six levels of processing: retrieval, comprehension, analysis, knowledge utilization, metacognition, and self-system thinking, this guide offers specific applications for: (1) Designing and classifying educational objectives; (2) Creating assessments; (3) Redesigning state and district-level standards; (4) Formulating curriculum; (5) Outlining a thinking-skills curriculum. Robert Marzano, author of 25 books, 150 articles and chapters in books, and 100 sets of curriculum materials for teachers and students in grades K-12, is president of Marzano & Associates, senior scholar at Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning (McREL), and associate professor at Cardinal Stritch University. John S. Kendall, senior director in research at Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning (McREL), has authored or co-authored six books and more than 30 articles. The book contains six chapters: (1) The Need for a Revision of Bloom's Taxonomy; (2) The Knowledge Domains; (3) The Three Systems of Thinking; (4) The New Taxonomy and the Three Knowledge Domains; (5) The New Taxonomy as a Framework for Objectives, Assessments, and State Standards; and (6) The New Taxonomy as a Framework for Curriculum and Thinking Skills. This book is concluded with an epilogue, a list of references and an index.
