Thick & Thin questions: great strategy for teaching students that have difficulty with answering questions! I find these thin an thick questions valuable for my grade 2 class. It helps students really think deeply about a topic.
Bloom& Taxonomy / new teacher evaluations require evidence of lesson planning for higher level thinking ~ I like thinking of it as a ladder and not a pyramid. All students can get to the top, with a pyramid it feels like only a few can.
