As we move to the Common Core and we look at the Depth of Knowledge that will be required for our students it is clear that the need for our students to create is critical. This post starts with the following sentence:

"When was the last time your students said “Wow, that worksheet changed my life”?  Can you even remember a similar cookie cutter classroom activity or assignment from your days as a student? Yet they were a popular tool because they were structured and efficient in getting the class to a set finish point."

After presenting "the exploding volcano project" the post turns to four strategies. The short hand version is below. Click through to the post for additional information.

1. Start with your specific learning objective.

2. The idea to be expressed comes before the tool used to express it.

3. Make asking "How will this show mastery of the learning objective?" your classroom mantra.

4. Engage in evaluating the PROCESS of creation and not just grading the finished project.

There is also an example a learning objective and a project that one student submitted.

If you love Bloom's Taxonomy and you love using iPads in the classroom you need to check out The Padagogly Wheel. It was developed by Allan Carrington to help teachers easily use apps (on the iPad) to help teachers follow Bloom's Taxonomy Higher Order Thinking Skills.
