Bloom's Taxonomy and Critical Thinking Instruction.
Paul, Richard W.
Educational Leadership, v42 n8 p36-39 May 1985
Briefly analyzes and critiques "The Taxonomy of Educational Objectives" by Benjamin Bloom and others from the perspective of the values and epistemological presuppositions of the critical thinking movement. Suggests that the hierarchical organization of the taxonomy fosters mistaken assumptions about cognitive processes and may hamper successful curriculum design efforts. (Author/PGD)
