Bloom’s Taxonomy, Thinking Skills and SoftChalk

Bloom’s Taxonomy asks students to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate. So what does that look like in a SoftChalk lesson? Duke University Talent Identification program will demonstrate how it creates lessons for gifted K-12 students where higher-order thinking skills are a priority. Using SoftChalk tools of embedding media, handouts, quizzes, and quality web links, curriculum developers create lessons that present students with real-world problems such as a disease outbreak. See how a new epidemiology and medicine course presents a model for how students can think at the highest levels of the taxonomy.  Applicable to both adult and younger learners.
