"Provides educators with a crisp, new lens to re-examine thinking and learning. Motivation and metacognition, two critical components, are now strategically and meaningfully integrated in a new taxonomy. This revised hierarchy takes us beyond Bloom toward a better understanding of educational theory and practice."

"Marzano′s Taxonomy will be of immediate and lasting use to curriculum developers, researchers, preparers of teachers and leaders, and practitioners involved in all aspects of standards-based learning.

"Educational leaders wishing to infuse greater complexity, rigor and substance into the curriculum will immerse themselves in The New Taxonomy of Educational Objectives.

Author: Arthur L. Costa, Professor Emeritus Published On: 2006-06-25
"Profound in its insights and challenging in its implications, Marzano′s Taxonomy will influence teaching, assessment, and accountability in every school. The authors force us to confront the gulf between current standards and testing regimes and the opportunity for sustained learning for which the Marzano′s Taxonomy will be the framework." Author: Douglas Reeves, CEO and Founder Published On: 2006-07-07
