Domains of Learning

I believe you should prepare instructional objectives in each domain of learning and at various levels to fulfill the needs of a wide range of different students. First you will ideally start at the knowledge level. This will ensure everyone has a base line of knowledge to build upon. Then you will probably move on to comprehension, then application, etc. and even higher levels. You can be assured to reach a multiple range of students by using a mixture of levels in each domain. Gifted students sometimes challenge the diverse levels. Each student is unique and learns in their own special way. This in turn keeps us teachers on our toes. Teaching with various domains of learning at different levels, satisfy the individual needs of a diverse group of students.

I totally agree with you. Our classrooms are filled with very diverse students and very diverse learning styles. A student may not fully understand the basic concepts until they are asked to perform hands on learning as a part of the application learning domain.

That is so very true. I think that all domains of learning should be applied because the students are so diverse and they learn at diffrent levels. Various levels must be presented to them in order to help them realize their own learnign potential. If they are not challenged then they won't know what they are capable of.
