Bloom's taxonomy has long been cited as a way to encourage students to learn in depth. It lists a hierarchy of skills that can be used to stretch student minds and develop a variety of activities.
Essentially, two forms exist: the original form and an updated one. Regardless of which one you use, Bloom’s offers a way to differentiate learning and show mastery of material at a variety of levels. This should increase the depth of learning.
I even use it for students to describe the type work they would like to do on a subject given that the higher the Bloom level, the higher the grade. It works.
