What does each section of Blooms taxonomy stand for? How does each level of Blooms taxonomy affect the other? Why do they need each other for learning to happen? How many levels of Blooms Taxonomy are there? Is ‘create’ at the top of Blooms Taxonomy? How far can we argue that this is a hierarchy and not a circle? If we created a level after ‘create’ what would we call it?
