Resizing and Duplicating for Quick Additions to the Code Window
Thinking more about the 2nd high leverage teaching practice, I realized the code hierarchy I made doesn’t give enough information about the type of questions the teacher asked. I used the terms ‘open’ and ‘closed’, but I didn’t provide codes related to Bloom’s Taxonomy, a common classification of questions and thinking in the education field (for more information on Bloom’s Taxonomy, visit: http://cft.vanderbilt.edu/teaching-guides/pedagogical/blooms-taxonomy/ ). Rather than code specifically for the level of bloom’s taxonomy, I decided it was more important to know whether teaching are asking more higher order or more lower order questions while teaching. Lower order questions involve basic fact recall and comprehension. Higher order questions would involve application, analysis, synthesis, or evaluation of content. In this video I demonstrate how quick it is to add to a code hierarchy at a later time using resizing and duplication.
Though I didn’t show it in the video, I also quickly added more activation links to complete the tree hierarchy with the same structure it had before (just another level added).
