In my first grade classroom, I feel it is important to lay a strong foundation for my students' learning. Here are some ways that I encourage thier thinking process:
- Bloom’s Taxonomy: knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis.
- Marzano’s Dimensions of Learning: positive attitude and climate, integration, productive habits of mind (critical/creative thinking).
- Costa & Kallick’s 16 Habits of Mind: humor, love for learning, learning continuously, responding with wonderment (maintaining curiosity/enthusiasm).
