Using Bloom's Taxonomy Question Types students will create questions on a dice template to help other learners answer questions about how things work or learn about a famous person.

Introduction

In 1956, Benjamin Bloom headed a group of educational psychologists who developed a classification of levels of intellectual behavior important in learning. Bloom used a six level pyramid diagram to facilitate using words to ask higher order level of questions.

 

The bottom of the pyramid represents where most questions are asked. These questions can be answered with "yes" or "no" answers. As you work your way up to the top of the pyramid the questions created use specific nouns which require much more "brain power" and a more extensive and elaborate answer.
