Whatever KS (or subject) you teach this is a relevant resources when you are planning something new or aiming to take your students to a higher level of achievement. I particularly recommend it for use with students who you are seeking to "push up a grade" or are looking for a move up from a very basic performance level.

When doing classroom observation (for both staff and students) I find that it is common for staff to "mix up the levels" of both understanding and performance, particularly when oral work is in progress. Students find it easier to move "up the steps" rather than jump about.

My students have made faster progress when working (on a new text for example) through the levels - from 1 - knowledge to 5 - synthesis. I also recommend that the specific vocabulary associated with each area, and the type of questions to explore each level and mastered before moving to the next level.

Invariably the first two levels give minimal problems to students. It is moving through the next three levels that prove problematic for students. Whatever their functioning level, being able to evaluate what they have done and how they are able to complete tasks is a valid activity for all.

I wrote this as part of an in-service training pack. It has been found particularly helpful for new teachers - who had met Bloom's Taxonomy in their training - but without the detail given here.
