Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy | Literacy Tool Kit | Scoop.it

Med Kharback:

I just got this poster from a fellow teacher featuring the 6 thinking skills as outlined in the revised taxonomy. As you probably know, Blooms taxonomy that was first created in the 1950s has been revised by Krathwohl and there are two  main changes that appeared in this revised taxonomy: the first one is semantic in that nouns are now being replaced with verbs; and the second change relates to the order of these thinking skills. In the old taxonomy, Bloom highlighted the importance of evaluating and therefore placed it at the top of the  thinking continuum, but for Krathwohl Creating is the highest order thinking skill.

Shannon O'Connor's insight:

I love using visual discovery in the classroom; what a great strategy for inferencing or simply student engagement.  While not all of these photos are "school appropriate," they are all fascinating and might get you thinking about different ways to use visual discovery within your classroom.

GIST%20Article.pdf

Shannon O'Connor's insight:

About half way through the article the GIST strategy is described:  pulls on the idea of chunking the text and creating a summary sentence for each paragraph or section that then gets compiled into an overall summary.  I do think editing and evaluating the final summary would need to be a big piece of this strategy.

Shannon O'Connor's insight:

With so many teacher's focusing on summary writing, the connection to Twitter, which forces the "Tweeter" to be concise and focus on word choice to convey the main idea is a good analogy which many of our high-school students will relate.

Shanahan on Literacy: Why Discussions of Close Reading Sound Like Nails Scratching on a Chalkboard

Shanahan on Literacy: Why Discussions of Close Reading Sound Like Nails Scratching on a Chalkboard | Literacy Tool Kit | Scoop.it
Shannon O'Connor's insight:

I love that Shanahan reminds us that close reading is an outcome that is made up of many flexible strategies to get us there.

"The problem for teachers is that they have to get a real sense of what close reading is and what steps in can include, and what they learn about that has to be articulated in a clear enough way that they could guide students to experience such work…... let the text dictate the terms of engagement. Some texts could be read closely in a couple of reads. Some might require attention to author’s word choices, while others might raise more structural issues."

Once again, we are remindd of best practices and that teachers must first guide themselves through a reading/activity before it is ever presented to students.

Shannon O'Connor's insight:

Don't let the grade level fool you, this is a great video showcasing how a teacher uses a metacognative approach to teaching and applying close reading for students to tackle rigorous text.  He starts with walking through the objective- another great "real classroom" use of applying close reading strategies.

Worth the wacth regardless of what grade level you teach!
