More on using Blooms Taxomomy

How Bloom’s works with learning outcomes

There are plenty of verb tables and lists to help identify which verbs align with each level in Bloom’s Taxonomy. You may notice that some of these verbs on the table are associated with multiple Bloom’s Taxonomy levels. These are actions that could apply to different activities. Keep in mind that it is the skill, action or activity you will teach using that verb that determines the Bloom’s Taxonomy level.
