Proposal Abstract

This presentation will show participants how to utilize Bloom's Taxonomy to build a writing assignment and model specific learning outcomes by building a sequence in the writing process from lower orders to higher orders of thinking. To demonstrate how this works, I will show the audience the sequence my students and I take in a specific assignment. Then attendees will select a writing assignment they might facilitate, and we will focus on two or three steps in the sequencing process. Participants will brainstorm possible activities for assignments modeled from Bloom's Taxonomy. In this session, they will consider how the activities parallel Bloom's. The objectives of the session are to show teachers the correlation between Bloom's Taxonomy and actual application, to demonstrate how teachers can adapt this research to writing assignments, and to discuss variations that can occur in the sequencing process.
