Neighborhood Coat-of-Arms Project: Bloom's Taxonomy and Other Developmental Theories in Action.
The progress of groups of junior high school students working together was measured by the developmental theories of Bloom, Piaget, and Kohlberg. Each group was assigned the task of designing a coat-of-arms representing their neighborhood. This project involved not only physically producing a shield (designing, drawing, choosing colors) but also comprehending their community and creating symbols for it. This study traces the thought processes and group dynamics that eventually produced each coat-of-arms, using as reference points Bloom's taxonomy of sequential and progressive educational objectives, as well as Piaget's theories on cognitive development and Kohlberg's stages of moral development.
