How It Works: 

Use the above links to download resources to get students understanding the different thinking skills involved in learning. 
These will present them with opportunities to stretch and challenge themselves.

As a teacher set your objectives for your lessons using the bloom stems?

Objective- Outcome- Success Criteria...

I get my A level students to have the info sheet at the front of their file (Laminate it- Put it in a plastic wallet- different colour for different skill? All on one page- up to you!) BUT regularly ask them to work upwards through the skills... e.g:

Know ----> Understand ----> Evaluate ----> Create 

Examples of questions you or your students can ask relating to the particular skill can be seen below.

Acting like an ENCYCLOPEDIA where one finds information, facts, data

Acting like a JUDGE based on the evidence
Always improving, designing, planning
