Description - The New Taxonomy of Educational Objectives by Robert J. Marzano

It's been more than 50 years since Benjamin Bloom published his Taxonomy of Educational Objectives and Bloom's taxonomy is one of the most widely known and used models in education. While still useful, Bloom's taxonomy doesn't represent the most current research on the nature of knowledge and cognition, nor does it reflect the movement to standards-based education. Marzano's taxonomy is based on three domains of knowledge (information, mental procedures, and psychomotor procedures) and six levels of processing (Retrieval, comprehension, analysis, knowledge utilization, metacognitive, and self-system). Marzano's taxonomy has many uses, including; Designing and classifying educational objectives Designing assessments Redesigning state and district-level standards Designing curriculum Designing a thinking skills curriculum This groundbreaking book is essential reading for directors of curriculum and instruction, directors of staff development, principals, and teachers.
