As I was contemplating what to write about and why, I starting thinking things that I already do according to the two strategists. I realized that I already incororate most of what they speak about unconsciously. For example, when I am doing a writing assignment involving Pop Rocks to encourage descriptive writing, I know that it is actually an example of nonlinguistic representation. In addition to this, I know that when we do "Show Don't Tell" activities for writing I am addressing this as well.
As for if I will do things differently or if Bloom and Marzano will have an affect on my teaching, I can absolutely say YES! I will definately be more aware of the lessons that I do and if they encompass a strategy or a lower/higher thinking skill. In becoming more aware, I will make more of an effort to ensure that the strategies that I use are linked to this these as well as other BEST Practices.
