"As professional learning communities try to look at new ideas, this volume requires more than a passing glance or reference. It is certain to challenge your ideas about education." -- Teacher Librarian, April 2007 "Offers the field of education a well-researched, well-developed theory of curriculum design and assessment. Here is a practical model that becomes a powerful tool for educators; it will enhance the effectiveness of teaching and deepen the learning of students." --, February 2007 "A real contribution to the field of education. Provides a well-defined platform for making critical learning skills the basis of skilled-based instruction." -- Concha Delgado Gaitan, Independent Researcher and Writer "Presents material in a manner that seduces readers to want to read on and gather more data so that they can understand and apply the new taxonomies." -- Robert L. Wyatt III, Professor Emeritus "This text is astoundingly important. A serious must-read for understanding global issues in developing educational objectives." -- Caroline R. Pryor, Assistant Professor and Wye Fellow "Provides clear examples of how the new taxonomy helps educators develop a common language and framework to connect standards with specific rubrics and techniques that teachers can use to help their students reach for mastery." -- Raymond Terrell, Assistant Dean for Research and Diversity "Marzano and Kendall haven't simply revised Bloom's Taxonomy. They have forged a thoroughly researched groundwork for numerous educational uses." -- Gregg E. Humphrey, Director of Elementary Education "Rich and theory-based, incorporating what we have learned about knowledge, thinking, and cognition in the last 50 years. Also quite practical, demonstrating how this new taxonomy can be used as a framework for standards, assessments, and curriculum." -- Carol A. Bartell, Assistant Director "A clearly practical model that becomes a very powerful tool for educators. The concept sizzles with innovation." -- Carolyn Orange, Professor of Educational Psychology "Fully reflects the impressive advancements in the last few decades. Marzano's Taxonomy provides educators with a practical tool to improve the effectiveness of their teaching and their students' learning by helping educators more explicitly frame educational objectives and assessment, use state standards, and design general and thinking-skills curricula." -- Dale W. Lick, Professor "Marzano and Kendall provide a clear, practical model for educators to follow when developing objectives, assessments, and lessons to improve student achievement. Teachers, teacher leaders, curriculum specialists, and administrators will all find this new taxonomy an essential resource!" -- Ellen Kottler, Lecturer "Useful not only for teachers in addressing objectives, standards, and classroom assessment, but also for other educators as they formulate objectives, develop strategies, and determine the knowledge necessary to improve the educational system in general." -- Carolyn J. Wood, Professor of Educational Leadership "Marzano and Kendall provide a critical, theoretically consistent overview of educational objectives with detailed examples of assessment frameworks that bring the 'new' taxonomy to life. The focus on curriculum design that embeds rigorous assessment is a helpful contribution to a new generation of educators challenged to implement content standards for student learning." -- Michelle Collay, Associate Professor "Marzano's Taxonomy skillfully advances the concepts, categories, and conversations related to educational objectives, and equips learners and teachers with an interconnected and comprehensive design for processing and expressing thoughts, words, and actions." -- Nancy P. Gallavan, Associate Dean & Professor "A pioneering approach to critical and higher order thinking skills with implications for designing educational objectives, framing curricula design, and implementing national standards and assessments. To prepare elementary and secondary school teachers for teaching a thinking-based curriculum, this book should be part of every undergraduate and graduate teaching program across the country." -- Douglas Llewellyn, Professor, Science Education "Offers the field of education a well researched, well developed theory of curriculum design and assessment. Guidelines for expanding and extending student learning far surpass previous books of its kind." -- Carol M. Roberts, Professor of Organizational Leadership "Marzano and Kendall provide the necessary ingredients to help fulfill the rhetoric that all kids can learn-and at a high level of thinking! This book informs work on standards at the state and local levels and provides clear examples to assist teachers in their curriculum and assessment design work." -- Bena Kallick, Educational Consultant & Vice President "A potent tool for designing educational objectives, developing assessments, making state standards more useful to teachers and students, designing curriculum, and formulating a thinking skills curriculum." -- Carol Ann Tomlinson, Professor of Educational Leadership, Foundations, & Policy "Provides fresh ideas and a set of 'thinking protocols' to help us remember that a primary focus in education must be to develop the mental abilities of our students." -- Lynn Erickson, Curriculum Design Consultant "A masterful synthesis, incorporating extensive analysis of state and national content standards with insights from cognitive psychology to produce a more contemporary educational schema. Like a new version of computer software, Marzano's Taxonomy offers a significant upgrade to the classic work of Benjamin Bloom and his colleagues." -- Jay McTighe, Author and Consultant "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." -- Douglas Reeves, CEO and Founder "Educational leaders wishing to infuse greater complexity, rigor and substance into the curriculum will immerse themselves in The New Taxonomy of Educational Objectives. The beneficiaries will be teachers who will reach beyond their current achievements and students who will develop the intellectual prowess required to master the intricacies, dichotomies, and ambiguities of life in the 21st and 22nd centuries." -- Arthur L. Costa, Professor Emeritus "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. Timely, clearly written, easy to follow, and filled with strong examples and connections to Bloom's Taxonomy." -- Doug Harris, Co-Director "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." -- Virginia Cotsis, Secondary Curriculum Specialist
