I have taught several lessons in science that benefit from Bloom’s Taxonomy. The most notable is the school science fair that my students must complete. It takes all of the aspects from Bloom and applies them to a large, quarter long project. First the students must find resources to support their topic (Remembering), understand them (Understanding) and analyze/evaluate them (Analyzing/Evaluating). Once they have their sources, they need to put together the information into a background information paper and design their experiment (Creating, Evaluating, and Applying). Finally, they carry out the experiment, record their results, analyze them, and present their information to judges (Remembering, Understanding, Evaluating, Analyzing).

     Additionally, this project could benefit from Digital Bloom’s Taxonomy by integrating more tech based approaches. They must already use advanced searches and databases to find their information, as well as Excel to graph and analyze their data, but integrating more of the digital verbs into the lesson planning could be quite beneficial. I would most likely Move their science fair journal to a digital format (perhaps as a blog or wiki) to help acclimate my students to digital spaces, as well as to allow a more organized approach to recording their progress.
