During our eMints class on 2/3/09, we spent a our time reviewing Blooms's Taxonomy
. We reviewed printed versions of Blooms's Taxonomy and I shared the Learning in Action
version. After discussing Blooms Taxonomy and the associated verbs, we were asked to create our own "rubric" using appropriate verbs from those associated with Blooms Taxonomy.
I relied on my Twitter
friends to help me throughout the activity. I was reminded the Bloom's Rubrics wiki
, a revision of Bloom's Taxonomy
by both @paulawhite
reminded me that Utah teachers have two multimedia rubrics One
available through UEN
Our next task was to determine how much each section of the rubric should be worth (e.g. Content / Visual / Presentation). Our groups had a lively discussion regarding how and why each group assigned differing values to the sections. In the end, we determined that each group needed to use a rubric that worked for their subject and class setting. We then began working individually on a rubric or checklist we can use with our class.
This morning 3/4/09, @paulawhite
made a wonderful post regarding Bloom's Taxonomy
that I highly recommend.
