Bloom’s Taxonomy within a Planning Pyramid

The Unit Planning Form displays the learning expectations which include what some students will learn, what most of the students will learn, and what all of the students will learn. Expectations with clear objectives allow the teacher to recognize that each student is different. All students do not have the same interests, abilities, and personalities. Using the pyramid, the teacher is able to learn all aspects of a student. The pyramid also shows methods, resources, and techniques that will be used in the classroom setting. The middle part of this pyramid shows the instructional adaptations and strategies.

* Instructional Grouping can be used by a teacher often. This method allows the teacher to disperse the students into collaborative groups or teams. The form on page 115 proves that learning groups are an adaptation.

* Content Presentation is a way to improve the learning in the classroom by being informative. This method allows students to be aware of the activities that will be completed. Presentations also provide a concept map that would present the content that will be learned.

* Provided Practice is a strategy that will help students understand the information they are provided. Understanding information is just as important as seeing and retaining.

* Progress Monitoring is also a very important method that teachers must utilize. This method is used to monitor how the class is progressing as a whole with the academic learning. Tests are one way to see the class’ grades, thus showing the level of information.
