What is better than one interesting and slightly humorous taxonomy? Two, you say? How about three? A very entertaining set of examples was found on the US Government Teacher’s Blog in their post, “Bloom’s Taxonomy According to the Pirates of the Caribbean.”
That post feeds my silly side, as well as reminds me of the need to learn more and look at things from a different perspective. Taxonomies really are everywhere if we just look. Raise your hand if you thought of taxonomies while watching Pirates of the Caribbean, Seinfeld, or even The Andy Griffith Show. I thought as much.
Take a few minutes to watch these videos. Besides being entertaining and nostalgic, they are informative. Maybe you will come away knowing a little more about taxonomies, coffee tables, and the United States Constitution.
