Did Bloom’s Taxonomy Change?
According to a certain website and to the administrators at my school Bloom’s Taxonomy did change. Who knew? Actually Bloom’s understudy Lorin Anderson altered the taxonomy to be more relevant to the current times. This new version of Bloom’s taxonomy has been in place since the 90’s. Synthesis has been removed and Creating has been added as the most difficult level of Bloom’s taxonomy. Also, Anderson changed all of the taxonomy levels into verbs instead of nouns. For example, instead of the Knowledge level, Knowledge has been replaced with the verb Understanding. To view an example of the taxonomy, click here.
