Bloom's Taxonomy Question Stems

Questioning at a higher level can encourage students to explore deeper understandings of the concepts being taught. As a visual reminder of higher level questions, I use question stem cards and put them on a ring. The question stems come from Bloom's Taxonomy. Questions are leveled. Each level of Bloom's Taxonomy then is put on a different colored index card. This helps to quickly identify question stems that I want to use during a lesson.

When I am doing whole group instruction or small group instruction, I can pick up my ring of cards and differentiate the type of questions I am asking my students to foster deeper conversations. Click on the image and get your own copy of some question stems from the lowest level of understanding which is remembering to the highest level of understanding which is creating.
