Understanding is a product of what we bring to the learning experience and requires us to rectify this with the new concepts we are developing. This process of constructing understanding follows a critical thinking continuum originally identified by the hierarchical steps of Bloom’s taxonomy, then revised to express active, less hierarchical processes by Anderson and Krathwohl (2002). This is the cognitive domain of Bloom and Anderson and Krathwohl, where we actively take the following steps: • Knowledge/Remember: Gather information knowledge to retrieve for further thinking to create • Comprehension/Understand: Come to know what the information means through interpretation, explanations, expression, and generalizations • Application/Apply: Bring learned facts and concepts to new situations, by comparing and relating them to what we previously believed and making predictions about the future • Analysis/Analyze: Consider them for their essential truths by taking them apart to compare and contrast • Synthesis: Put them back together into logical categories and new creations and designs, bringing ideas together to create new conceptual meaning (Bloom) 41 • Evaluation/Evaluate: Critique and interpret to make informed judgments about what we have learned, judgments we can justify and share with others as we creatively put them to good use in the present and future • Create: Put it all together to use and create new schema, to take what we now know and, on firm ground, explore the uncharted world of “what if” (Anderson and Krathwohl) The taxonomy compliments the two categories of history education defined by the United States Department of Education: (1) ways of knowing and thinking about history (historical knowledge and perspective) and (2) historical analysis and interpretation.
