Valuable domain's of learning....

I think each domain of learning is valuable, but some are really close in comparison and they overlap in a way. I do think that it is important to teach in every domain and students learn differently at different levels. A lot of students stay only in the knowledge domain, you have to push them to move up or they will stay at the same level forever. I love the application domain. I also believe that students learn better in this domain and the synthesis domain. I have tried to keep my upper level classes more in the divergent domains because they learn the basic knowledge in the lower level classes and should be able to develop more in the upper classes.

I think you are right how the domains overlap. I also think that if you are overlapping your instruction by using all domains, you are doing it perfectly! I find myself always thinking of activities that include more personal things, but it is hard considering the class materials I have only use the cognitive domain of learning.

I agree each domain of learning is very valuable. All students are different and they learn in their own individual way. By using the instructional objectives in each domain of learning teachers reach a wide variety of students on various levels. I believe that by pushing your students to the next level they will grow and learn. It is our job as their teacher to get them to the next level. The application domain is also one of my favorite teaching techniques.
