Bloom's (Revised) Taxonomy - Interative

This is not the type of post I normally do but Bloom's Taxonomy was such a huge help to me when I was teaching and developing educational products that I thought it was important and relevant.

Bloom's Taxonomy is a structure to help explain the different levels of questioning.  It has been revised recently and there have been many attempts to explain the revisions.  This interactive diagram is one of the best explanations I have seen. The diagram is set up so mousing over each square pops up an example of an activity that matches the level of questioning.

In many cases teachers are asked to make sure classroom assessments cover all levels of Bloom's taxonomy and this diagram would be very helpful in doing that. The diagram is written so that teachers of all grade levels can see examples of different question types. This is a great resource for all new teachers, teachers of new subject areas and teachers writing classroom assessments for the first time.
