The Cognitive Taxonomy Circle – A great visual support for planning for deeper levels of thinking (teaching & learning)

This was shared in another forum and I thought it would be worth sharing here. It’s a great visual planning diagram to view when thinking and planning opportunities for our students to develop deeper levels of thinking. The diagram identifies the activities and products related to Remembering, Applying, Analysing, Creating and Evaluating. Follow the link below the image.

    Lovin’ the visual that you have included in this post! As a “veteran” teacher , this is stuff I learned in college and have used for years, so I “know” it …. yet I have kept a list similar to this in my plan book for years to keep it at the forefront of my planning ….. I find I check it often for some inspiration when I need to create something new and engaging for the kids!

    Imagine the value for newer teachers as they begin their careers – and the impact it would have on their young charges!

    I am a visual person, so I am thrilled to print and put this graphic into my plan book (when school starts in September……)

    Thanks!
