Hey Ollie,
Interesting to see Bloom's Taxonomy in your slides...it features so heavily in the NZ curriculum that I couldn't really imagine how I would approach my lessons without it now. Don't know if I'd have given it much of a chance when I was still at Mussey (what are the SMT on about at *this* PD?!) but maybe that's just what happens when you take yourself out of everything you've done before and try to look at things (and try things) from a different approach?
What's amazing for me though, is that the kids 'get it' too - from Y9 right through to Y13, they don't settle for "describing" but they want to #explain", "discuss" and "critically evaluate".
Still trying to keep myself up to date with as much of the new Scottish curriculum developments as possible but things do seem a bit vague. Looking forward to hearing how departments are actually changing and embracing change. (?!)
