Using Bloom's Taxonomy for Effective Learning
The hierarchy of Bloom's Taxonomy is the widely accepted framework through which all teachers should guide their students through the cognitive learning process. In other words, teachers use this framework to focus on higher order thinking skills. You can think of Bloom's Taxonomy as a pyramid, with simple knowledge-based recall questions at the base.

Bloom's Taxonomy for Effective Learning

A method used by teachers to improve learning: Students are asked to deal with increasingly challenging questions to test their comprehension of a given material. By asking critical thinking questions, all levels of thinking are being developed. 


Students will have improved attention to detail, as well as an increase in their comprehension and problem-solving skills.

Bloom's Taxonomy's Synthesis

Synthesis is placed on fifth level of the Bloom's Taxonomy. This is the level where parts or information are put as a whole in order to create new meaning or a new structure.

Synthesis Writing

It is a process in which a student makes the explicit connection between an argument and an evidence from sources with similar or dissimilar ideas. Sources could be from articles, fiction, posts, or infographics as well as non-written sources, such as films, lectures, audio recordings, or observations.

Two Types of Synthesis Essays

Explanatory Synthesis
  • Used to deconstruct or divide evidence into logical parts.
  • Usually describes objects, places, events, or processes.
  • It is objective, it doesn't present a position.
Argumentative Synthesis
  • Presents a position or opinion which is supported with evidence

Learning theories

Learning theories develop hypotheses that describe how learning takes place.

The major theories of learning are the following: 

  • behaviorist theories 
  • co...

Behaviorism theories

The behaviorist perspectives of learning originated in the early 1900s. The main idea of behaviorism is that learning consists of a change in behavior because of obtaining, strengthening and applying associations between input from the world, and observations of the individual.

  • Learning is reinforced by exercise and repetition, followed by a positive reward.
  • Learning takes place when the right parts of more complex behavior are rewarded.

Cognitive psychology

Cognitive psychology started in the late 1950s and contributed to the move away from behaviorism.

  • Instead of viewing people as collections of responses to external stimuli, people are viewed as information processors.
  • Cognitive psychology was influenced by the computer that processes information, that became analogous to the human mind.
  • Cognitive psychology understands learning as absorbing knowledge, acting on it, and storing it in memory.
  • The main teaching methods are lecturing and reading textbooks, where the learner receives knowledge passively.
