Bloom's Taxonomy is a classification system used to define and distinguish different levels of human cognition—i.e., thinking, learning, and understanding. Educators have typically used Bloom’s taxonomy:

  • curriculum (units, lessons, projects, and other learning activities)
  • instructional methods such as questioning strategies.
