Bloom’s taxonomy. Facione’s core critical thinking skills. Paul and Elder’s elements of thought.
Compare and contrast these models. What do you see as their strengths and weaknesses? What do they share in common? What does synthesize mean within the context of Bloom’s taxonomy and Granello’s 2001 article, “Promoting Cognitive Complexity in Graduate Written Work”? How could you imagine using each model as a practitioner-scholar working in your specialization? Give an example of how you would use each model to evaluate some content in one of the articles you located for your research project.
