    The antique car project used lessons that were at the analysis level. Students had to research types of cars, engines, performance of engines etc. and compare those characteristics between modern day cars and antique cars. They compared cost of cars and household income and transferred that to how you can afford to buy a car today with a limited income.

    There was another project that simply used the knowledge level where the students had to use the internet to research information on a specific topic and write about it. Looking at the project from this perspective really makes it easy that the project wasn’t very productive.

    Project: Career Brochure
    Home & Careers

    Bloom’s Taxonomy

    *Knowledge: Search the internet about a career of choice. (List, define, & label)

    *Comprehension: Write paragraphs about what that job entails, based on previous research. (Explain, paraphrase, describe)

    *Application: Create brochure with details about job and images that demonstrate this career. (Apply, solve, demonstrate)

    *Analysis: Talk with your classmates about different jobs and compare and contrast the differences. Categorize based on set criteria. (Analyze, compage & categorize)

    *Syntehsis: What paths do you have to take to obtain this position? (Invent)

    The last (current actually) projest is a spreadhseet project tracking Christmas purchases. This lesson/project is at the application level, as it is the first actual spreadhsheet most students have ever done.

    The goal is to then have the students take these new skills and apply then to another procject, setting up their own spreadsheets, determining how the software can make a task easier, and how to set it up so that it displays the data so that it is easy to read and pull information out of.

    Need to first look at what I will teach, and understand it better.

    Easier to just say “I’m teaching A and B”. Reviewing Bloom makes a teacher stop and decide HOW to teach the concept and WHAT will actually be taught.

    Now I can better understand how a teacher needs to decide how technology can be used as a means to teach and learn the concept.
