Bloom's Taxonomy


Definition: Bloom's Taxonomy refers to a hierarchy of question stems that teachers use to guide their students through the learning process.

When students are first being introduced to a new topic, teachers should use Bloom's Taxonomy to get ideas for basic questions that ask the students to recall simple facts from the material. As student comprehension grows and evolves, the questions will get more complex and demand more from the students.
