Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 05, 2014
Mentoring Minds, a national publisher of K-12 educational resources, is the winner of a REVERE Distinguished Achievement Award from the Association of American Publishers (AAP), for its Depth of Knowledge – Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy Wheel in the Professional Development Category, Curriculum, Instruction and Classroom Practice.
“The Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy Wheel puts a tool for integrating the development of students’ critical thinking skills right in teachers’ hands. It is a simple, yet powerful, way to ensure they have the just-in-time resources necessary to help students build these important 21st-century skills,” said Robert Bush, CEO of Mentoring Minds. “It is an honor to have our professional development tool recognized by the prestigious REVERE Awards.”
The Depth of Knowledge – Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy Wheel is designed to help students process information at different levels of thinking and at different depths of thinking. The wheel features the six levels of the Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy on one side and the four levels of Webb’s Depth of Knowledge on the other side. Engagement prompts are provided to help teachers develop, review, or extend conceptual knowledge. The wheel offers educators quick and easy access to a critical thinking resource for engaging students in rigorous and complex thinking. Teaching students to become skilled thinkers allows educators to address the cognitive demands of standards and assessments.
The REVERE Awards program is the most prestigious and comprehensive recognition program in the learning resource community. Formerly known as the Association of Educational Publishers Awards program, this annual event continues a decades-long tradition of honoring excellence across all resources for preK-12 and adult learners, educators and administrators. Each submission undergoes a meticulous multi-level review by a panel consisting of educators and education professionals. The largest of the REVERE Awards, the Distinguished Achievement Awards honor the widest range of educational content available for use in educating learners of all ages.
