Bloom’s & Gardner’s Writing Matrix

Bloom’s & Gardner’s Writing Matrix

When we found this Blooms Gardners Writing Matrix it reminded us that we should be using Blooms Taxonomy and Gardners Multiple Intelligences matrix in our classroom, teaching and planning!  If you’re looking for a great range of  higher order thinking verbs and effective questions to extend your students’ thinking, for your next classroom activity, you’ll love our  favourite Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences and  Blooms Taxonomy ideas, posters and displays for teachers. Our favourite is the Blooms Gardner writing Matrix!

Using a Bloom’s matrix in the classroom is a perfect way to differentiate curriculum for the students in your classroom. When teachers create a range of activities and lessons using Blooms Taxonomy they create opportunity for everyone to achieve at their best levels. It is particularly powerful for extending students thinking which deepens their levels of understanding.

Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences strategies are also a must in my classroom and are a perfect way to facilitate your learners learning preferences and yet another way of getting the best for all learning styles!

When Blooms taxonomy and Gardner’s multiple intelligences strategies are combined in a Blooms Gardner matrix during your planning,  a perfect learning storm can be created! The Blooms Gardner Writing Matrix is one such storm!

Take a look at some of these awesome activities, tools and visuals that we have found to help you plan and teach your next Gardner & Blooms Lesson.
