“Bloom’s Taxonomy makes the education world go ’round. In one model is a framework that not only lays out for teachers the kinds of thinking that we, as humans, tend towards, but also provides a kind of hierarchy that etches out the possible progression of that thinking. If we can remember, we can begin to understand. Understanding allows us to apply what we know, which enables us to make judgments on the utility of that knowledge, and even our own mastery of it.”
