Bloom's Taxonomy

Every year we are required to set a professional goal.  This year, my goal was to incorporate more higher level thinking into our classroom.  To help me out (and a great suggestion from my student teacher last year!)  I made posters to hang up on the wall to remind me of some questions to ask.  Towards the end of the year, the kids knew what I was doing.  I would start out with the remember type questions, and then move towards evaluate.  Next year I want to get them to be more able to ask these types of questions of each other.  Baby steps... 

How do you incorporate higher level thinking into your classrooms? 









I blew up the posters to fit better on a big poster board paper, but I kept the clue words the same size that they are in the first download.  I also included a smaller version, in case you want to make smaller posters. :)
