  3. 3. Benjamin Samuel Bloom      ) (1913-1999 Master’s degree from Pennsylvania State University. Doctorate’s degree from the University of Chicago in1942. Bloom authored or co-authored 18 publications including Bloom’s Taxonomy. Although it received little attention when it was first published, Bloom’s Taxonomy has since been translated into 22 languages and is one of the most often cited references in education. For over 50 years, these objectives have been used to structure lessons, guide learning, and assess students' performance Bloom’s Taxonomy Areas of Domain 1) 2) 3) The Cognitive Domain is a knowledge-based domain, consisting of six levels. The Affective Domain is an attitudinal-based domain, consisting of five levels. The Psychomotor Domain is a skills-based domain, consisting of six levels.

  8. 8. Writing Affective Domain  These objectives focus on changing learners’ attitudes  The expression of these often involves statements of opinions, beliefs, or an assessment of worth (Smith & Ragan, 1999).  They deal almost exclusively with internal feelings and conditions that can only be artificially observed externally; therefore, their assessment is usually difficult
