Dimensions of Learning model
Model of learning developed by Marzano et al (1988) that links content area knowledge, metacognition, and critical and creative thinking with a taxonomy of thinking skills and thinking processes.
See also North Carolina thinking skills.
The Dimensions of Learning model is the basis of the North Carolina thinking skills used by NCDPI.
This model also includes a hierarchy of thinking skills similar to Bloom’s Taxonomy: focusing, information gathering, remembering, organizing, analyzing, generating, integrating, and evaluating. See this chart for a comparison of various models of thinking skills.
