Bloom’s Taxonomy of learning objectives can be a great tool in a teacher’s toolbox.
The 48 cards in the “Let’s Bloom” set will come in handy if you want your students to:
- practise and revise vocabulary on a variety of topics
- be guided from easier to more demanding speaking and writing tasks
- employ both lower-level thinking skills and higher-order ones
- have a choice of individualised tasks that will meet their current needs
so that ultimately they can bloom!
