So, we had another workshop today for ELA, Common Core, and Active Literacy Across the Curriculum. I was pleasantly surprised to see how well they are showing the importance of literacy across the board, in every classroom, at every grade level. It is so nice to finally see “Creating” at the top of the pyramid for Bloom’s Taxonomy. We art peeps have known this for a long time – it is harder to create something (a product) to demonstrate what you’ve learned and to share with others than it is to just evaluate something. I’ll be expecting my art budget to quadruple at any moment… okay, so I’m not really holding my breath for that but it’s a step in the right direction. I also came across this blog with a cute little visual for the new Bloom’s. Just thought I would share!
