Back to Square One! The authors first researched, analyzed, and compiled a more accurate basic list of the verbs associated with the levels of the Taxonomy. Then, after a description and comparison of each level in teacher-friendly terms (with examples!) the authors present over 60 unit activities at the primary and intermediate (K-6th) levels in Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
Accompanying each unit are questions at each of the 6 levels of the Taxonomy – over 360 lower and higher level questions!
Off to the Future! Your classroom will buzz with activity with kids moving full-speed ahead with projects, research, and the acquisition of skills. They will be challenged, motivated, and engaged in learning, boosted to higher levels of thinking and achievement. From a focus on student behavioral objectives to the incorporation of academic standards and the integration of many subjects into one lesson, the Taxonomy still stands strong today.
