    What is Bloom's taxonomy?

    Recently I found this article Bloom's Taxonomy Then I Googled "Bloom's taxonomy," then "taxonomy." I can't understand the meaning of it. Is this some strategy for studying? But the word "taxonomy" means "the science of naming, describing and classifying organisms and includes all plants, animals, and microorganisms of the world." (from https://www.cbd.int/gti/taxonomy.sht...%20the%20world.) What does it have to do with studying?

    Re: What is Bloom's taxonomy?

    The very first paragraph of the page you linked to seems to explain exactly what it is:

    "Bloom’s taxonomy is a set of hierarchical models that classify educational learning objectives. It divides them into levels that differ in their specificity and complexity. Students use it for better learning and understanding of a subject, while tutors incorporate it into teaching."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    In this case, "taxonomy" means classifying and naming concepts. Does that help?
    I am not a teacher.

    That's only a very narrow and specifically biological definition. The word is used in a much wider sense.

    That link pointed to an essay writing cheat site. Any such link will be deleted. Please do not link to essay writing services even if they happen to have some content on them worth reading, which will probably be plagiarised anyway.
