Using Bloom's Taxonomy to Improve Questioning and Deepen Learning
  • Meghann Urewicz says:
    Questioning seems like a simple instructional strategy but there's a lot more to effective questioning. This website gives some background on the importance of questioning, and the different types of questions that are effective for learning. I also love that they give some examples of effective and ineffective questions, and ways to incorporate good questioning into your classroom routine.

    When I'm teaching, I find coming up with questions relatively easy, but I struggle with how to follow-up after students answer. What do I say when they don't quite get the answer I'm looking for? How do I redirect? How much time should I give students to think or modify their answers? This website answers a lot of my questions and made me a more effective questioner. It also has lots of links to other great resources for conitnued learning.

    Sometimes I look at the Bloom's taxonomy and I love the ideas behind it but I'm at a loss of how to apply it in my classroom. How can I stimulate that deeper thought in my students? This article provides a great starting place. I can use it to develop new questions that will fall into each category, and also reference good activity types that would apply for each level of thought.

    This video is a great example of student-led discussion. When students are leading the discussion, they are automatically accessing the higher portion of Bloom's Taxonomy. The strategies offered in this video will help you to lead a similar discussion and keep it going with appropriate questions.
