Learning Theory

It is very important for teachers be familiar and teach to the way our students learn. Each student is very different and learn in different ways.
Blooms Taxonomy there are six parts that provide stucture for teachers and students. Here is a table that is an example of Blooms Taxonomy and how it goes along with this lesson.

Bloom's Taxonomy

Explanation of Term

How it is represented in this Lesson Plan and Activity


The learner must recall information.

Applied when taking assessment and being asked questions from the lesson.


The learner understands what is being communicated so that he could explain it to someone.

Applied in the assessment and activity.


The learner finds a practical use for in particular and concrete situations

The activity helps the student to apply application.


The learner can break down parts and see how they work together.

This is applied when the student creates powerpoint.


The learner puts together elements or parts to form a whole.

This is also applied when the student creates powerpoint.


The learner makes judgments about the value of the material or methods for a given purpose.

This is applied in the lesson and activity.

Multiple Intelligence Theory:
Multiple Intelligence is another theory that allows students to learn in the classroom. This theory is based on the how students learn in different ways. It is a great idea for teachers to use this theory when there are a few students still struggling with learning the material. There are eight different multiple intelligences:
    • Words (linguistic intelligence)
    • Numbers or logic (logical-mathematical intelligence)
    • Pictures (spatial intelligence)
    • Music (musical intelligence)
    • Self-reflection (intrapersonal intelligence)
    • A physical experience (bodily-kinesthetic intelligence)
    • A social experience (interpersonal intelligence), and/or
    • An experience in the natural world. (naturalist intelligence)


Constructivist Learning Theory:
The last theory that enables students to learn in the classroom is the Constructivist learning theory. In this theory there are eight teaching strategies are:
  • Learner Centered
  • Interesting
  • Real Life
  • Social
  • Active
  • Time
  • Feedback
  • Supportive


Theses stratagies are important to use in the classroom because these all enhance student learning. The students interest, ideas and real life situations are used and this allows students to become more engaged.
