“Over the past week, I’ve been sharing lessons we’ve been doing with students on Bloom’s Taxonomy, as well as studies and ideas on the general idea of helping students reflect on if what they are learning in school is relevant to their lives (see Why Is It Important For Students To Learn About Bloom’s Taxonomy? and “Relevance” & Student Learning).

Today, students began to post on our class blog short responses to the question:

“Is it important to to learn about Bloom’s Taxonomy?”

You can see the first twenty or so responses here, including a couple of Fotobabbles.

The vast majority there are positive, though there are one or two students who answered negatively.”
