How do I get started using Bloom's Taxonomy?

The first step is to become familiar with the levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy. Each level is aligned with verbs that trigger the different types of thinking. Next, examine the types of questions you typically use with your students, both orally and written. See what verbs these questions include and determine how they align with Bloom’s levels. Make sure you have several questions that use verbs in the higher three levels (analysis, synthesis and evaluation). Make sure that the questions and the verbs you use accurately reflect each level. You may need to change or reword some of your questions as you do this. Start small with one lesson and build from there.
