Dr. Linda Robinson at North Carolina State University created an assignment for her undergraduate education students in which they read a chapter of The Art of Learning and then created a series of questions based on Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy.  The questions were developed to be used by teachers with middle school students who were reading The Art of Learning.  Here are a few samples of their work:

Purpose/Loving the Game



Kenneth Kiewra, a professor in the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Nebraska, assigned The Art of Learning to the graduate students in his “Teaching Learners to Learn” course.  They were then given an assignment to describe how they would take principles from the text and apply them in their own lives.  Here are several responses he received:

Innocent Moves/Beginner’s Mind

Losing to Win/Making Sandals

Power of Presence/Building Your Trigger
