"A good teacher makes you think, even when you don't want to." (Fisher, 1998, Teaching Thinking)

One pedagogical work that has stood the test of time is Benjamin Bloom's Taxonomy. Though it was put forth in 1956, it still resonates with educators. (revised interactive version) We know that being able to regurgitate "facts" is not nearly as important as being able to use what we know to solve problems or make generalizations across various domains we encounter. As neuroscientists and educators collaborate, we find better and better ways to use what we know about how brains work to challenge and inspire our children. This presentation gives helpful hints that parents could use to promote higher level thinking in their children. Talk to your child's teacher, Sarah, Stephanie or me if you have questions. We LOVE to talk about learning!
