Promoting Higher Level Thinking Skills: Using Bloom’s Taxonomy with SoftChalk (Part 1)

Lyn Hawks, Coordinator of Independent Learning at Duke University TIP, shows how SoftChalk can be used to ensure that students are thinking at their highest level. Bloom’s Taxonomy is a familiar framework for educators as they help students explore levels of knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, evaluation, and synthesis. Lyn demonstrates 4 lessons – Social Studies (Greek Mythology), Language Arts (The Writers Journey), Science (Genetics) and Math (Numbers and Secret Codes)- to demonstrate how SoftChalk is used to achieve the goal of creating higher level thinking skills.
