Benjamin Bloom
By Jennifer Kenny

1     Who was Benjamin Bloom? Have you ever heard of him? Did you know his work might have affected what you are doing right now?
2     Bloom was born on February 21, 1913. As a child, he loved to read. He was quite curious. He even did lots of research. He earned degrees from Pennsylvania State University. He then earned a Ph.D. in education from the University of Chicago. Bloom had a wife, Sophie, and two sons. He enjoyed playing handball and Ping-Pong, too.
3     Bloom was trained as an educational psychologist. He had been part of the Board of Examinations at the University of Chicago. He was also a professor of education there. Bloom had a hopeful outlook for education: good schools made good things possible for children.
4     In 1956, Bloom and others published Taxonomy of Educational Objectives: Handbook 1, The Cognitive Domain. From here came Bloom's Taxonomy. Throughout the world, this has been used to prepare materials. What did it do? It ordered thinking into six complex levels. Each level depended on the ones before it. This changed evaluation methods all over the world.
