Bloom's taxonomy is a classification system used for educational learning objectives that covers cognitive, affective and psychomotor domains. It was named after Benjamin Bloom, who chaired the committee of educators that devised the taxonomy, which was published in 1956 and 1964. The cognitive domain list has been the primary focus of most traditional education and is frequently used to structure curriculum learning objectives, assessments and activities. The cognitive domain is broken down into six levels of objectives: Remember, Understand, Apply, Analyze, Evaluate, and Create. The affective domain describes the way people react emotionally and their ability to feel other living things' pain or joy. The psychomotor domain describes the ability to physically manipulate a tool or instrument. Some criticisms of the taxonomy exist, such as the lack of a systematic rationale of construction and the question of a sequential, hierarchical link. However, Bloom's taxonomy serves as the backbone of many teaching philosophies, particularly those that lean more towards skills rather than content. The skill development that takes place at higher orders of thinking interacts well with a developing global focus on multiple literacies and modalities in learning and the emerging field of integrated disciplines.
