Editorial Reviews

Virginia Cotsis
"Provides educators with a crisp, new lens to re-examine thinking and learning. Motivation and metacognition, two critical components, are now strategically and meaningfully integrated in a new taxonomy. This revised hierarchy takes us beyond Bloom toward a better understanding of educational theory and practice. "
Doug Harris
"Marzano's Taxonomy will be of immediate and lasting use to curriculum developers, researchers, preparers of teachers and leaders, and practitioners involved in all aspects of standards-based learning. Timely, clearly written, easy to follow, and filled with strong examples and connections to Bloom's Taxonomy. "
Arthur L. Costa
"Educational leaders wishing to infuse greater complexity, rigor and substance into the curriculum will immerse themselves in The New Taxonomy of Educational Objectives. The beneficiaries will be teachers who will reach beyond their current achievements and students who will develop the intellectual prowess required to master the intricacies, dichotomies, and ambiguities of life in the 21st and 22nd centuries. "
Douglas Reeves
"Profound in its insights and challenging in its implications, Marzano's Taxonomy will influence teaching, assessment, and accountability in every school. The authors force us to confront the gulf between current standards and testing regimes and the opportunity for sustained learning for which the Marzano's Taxonomy will be the framework. "
Jay Mc Tighe
"A masterful synthesis, incorporating extensive analysis of state and national content standards with insights from cognitive psychology to produce a more contemporary educational schema. Like a new version of computer software, Marzano's Taxonomy offers a significant upgrade to the classic work of Benjamin Bloom and his colleagues. "
Lynn Erickson
"Provides fresh ideas and a set of 'thinking protocols' to help us remember that a primary focus in education must be to develop the mental abilities of our students. "
Carol Ann Tomlinson
"A potent tool for designing educational objectives, developing assessments, making state standards more useful to teachers and students, designing curriculum, and formulating a thinking skills curriculum. "
Bena Kallick
"Marzano and Kendall provide the necessary ingredients to help fulfill the rhetoric that all kids can learn—and at a high level of thinking! This book informs work on standards at the state and local levels and provides clear examplesto assist teachers in their curriculum and assessment design work. "
Carol M. Roberts
"Offers the field of education a well researched, well developed theory of curriculum design and assessment. Guidelines for expanding and extending student learning far surpass previous books of its kind. "
Douglas Llewellyn
"A pioneering approach to critical and higher order thinking skills with implications for designing educational objectives, framing curricula design, and implementing national standards and assessments. To prepare elementary and secondary school teachers for teaching a thinking-based curriculum, this book should be part of every undergraduate and graduate teaching program across the country. "
Nancy P. Gallavan
"Marzano's Taxonomy skillfully advances the concepts, categories, and conversations related to educational objectives, and equips learners and teachers with an interconnected and comprehensive design for processing and expressing thoughts, words, and actions. "
Michelle Collay
"Marzano and Kendall provide a critical, theoretically consistent overview of educational objectives with detailed examples of assessment frameworks that bring the 'new' taxonomy to life. The focus on curriculum design that embeds rigorous assessment is a helpful contribution to a new generation of educators challenged to implement content standards for student learning. "
Carolyn J. Wood
"Useful not only for teachers in addressing objectives, standards, and classroom assessment, but also for other educators as they formulate objectives, develop strategies, and determine the knowledge necessary to improve the educational system in general. "
Ellen Kottler
"Marzano and Kendall provide a clear, practical model for educators to follow when developing objectives, assessments, and lessons to improve student achievement. Teachers, teacher leaders, curriculum specialists, and administrators will all find this new taxonomy an essential resource! "

"Fully reflects the impressive advancements in the last few decades. Marzano's Taxonomy provides educators with a practical tool to improve the effectiveness of their teaching and their students' learning by helping educators more explicitly frame educational objectives and assessment, use state standards, and design general and thinking-skills curricula. "
Carolyn Orange
"A clearly practical model that becomes a very powerful tool for educators. The concept sizzles with innovation. "
