Guiding Your Students From LOTS to HOTS: Bloom's Taxonomy in the ESL Classroom

About this event

As a teacher, you've probably heard of Bloom’s Taxonomy and the idea of lower-order thinking skills (LOTS) and higher-order thinking skills (HOTS), but you may not be sure how to practically apply these concepts in the classroom.

As you’re developing lessons plans, how can your learning objectives and desired outcomes for students be mapped to create “scaffolded” lessons that challenge them to move from lower- to higher-order skills? And how can you check that students are achieving the objectives you’ve set forth?

Join Bridge’s expert panelists for answers to these questions and more about Bloom’s Taxonomy in the ESL classroom.
