Benjamin Bloom (1956) developed a classification of levels of intellectual behavior in learning. Within the cognitive domain, he identified six levels: knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. These domains and levels are still useful today as you develop the critical thinking skills of your students.
