Jennifer Field makes valid points on Bloom’s taxonomy in her post on “Overcoming Cooking Intimidation: Understanding Bloom’s Taxonomy”. Trained pastry chef with a master’s degree in special education, she relates Bloom’s theories to a culinary student’s learning experience.
Beginning with the first level of each domain, she presents the potential challenges that can inhibit a new cook from learning and moving on to the next level.
More importantly, when describing the three domains, she states:
“…that none exists in a vacuum. Our heads, hearts and bodies are all interconnected. And that means that our heads, hearts and bodies all have to be involved in learning every skill.”
This is a reminder that we cannot focus on one aspect of learning with realizing how connected is to other aspects.
