Bloom is a very upscale grocery store. The focus is on satisfying customers and providing food services to the community. The store uses clear energizing and communication goals to get the employees to strive to work harder. Employees of Bloom are highly motivated and hard working. Incentives, such as pay raises and promotions are also used to maintain employee satisfaction.
Although a division of the Food Lion Corporation, Bloom is a more upscale version of Food Lion. The store uses a variety of consumer-friendly technology. Self-checkout counters allow customers to scan their purchases themselves without having to wait in line for an available cashier. Many produce departments have scales featuring printers that will print a bar code for the item indicating the weight and price of the purchase. The Nature’s Place section offers a wide variety of natural and organic items. A person can also create their own six-pack of beer.
To compete with other stores, Bloom also offers a huge selection of in-store services. There is a Redbox for DVD rentals, and ATM machine, as well as copy and fax machines. The Guest Services Center also offers Western Union, check cashing, lottery tickets, hunting licenses, and dry cleaning services. Gift cards, phone cards, and transit cards are available as well.
Employees at Bloom appear to be friendlier than most grocery stores. When a customer enters the store, the employees say, “Welcome to Bloom, how may we assist you?” The majority of workers almost always know where everything is located. Other stores seem to be uncertain as to the location of many items and take a while to find someone who does know. I am thankful to have such a store as Bloom in my community.

Many Bloom grocery stores average approximately $10 – 20 million in revenue annually. For a privately owned company, this is very impressive. The recession has not…...

Blooms Taxonomy

...Bloom’s Taxonomy Eric Peppers, RN NUR/427 Version 4 Health and Chronic Disease Management October 22, 2012 Aimee Yager, RN, MSN, CPNP Bloom’s Taxonomy In 1956, Benjamin Bloom led a consortium of researchers to identify domains associated with educational learning activities. The domains were labeled cognitive, affective and psychomotor. Nursing education is driven by patient outcomes. In the modern era, healthcare providers are not only reimbursed for their care through a series of audits which gather information to justify the patient stay, but are also graded by surveying agencies on their quality of care. This focus has crossed over into the training level of nurses. When I think of Bloom’s application in nursing education, I recall the care plans we developed as student nurses. I do not recall specifically learning about Bloom’s Taxonomy, however this current research into the subject has caused much reflection, which leads me to the conclusion we were taught this concept. Critical thinking is at the heart of self-care just as much as it is at the heart of nursing. Larkin proposed, “some researchers argue critical thinking cannot be taught”, (Larkin and Burtin, 2008). Cognitive Domain The knowledge-based domain of the taxonomy is the cognitive domain. The learner is expected to gain knowledge from various types of stimuli including but not limited to oral, written or graphic information. Utilizing instructions, they should be able to carry out a task....

Blooms Taxonomy

...Bloom’s Taxonomy and Nursing Care Sherrie Fetterman Health and Chronic Disease Management/NUR427 October 3, 2011 Gina Stephens Bloom’s Taxonomy and Nursing Care An estimated 99 million Americans currently suffer from a form of chronic disease and will enter the health care field unknowing what to expect (Annuals of Internal Medicine, 2011). Disease knows no boundaries nor is there any age limitations. What is consistent, is the disease inflicted patients need to learn about their disease and how to live normal lives regardless of their literary level. In 1956, Benjamin Bloom and a group of educational psychologists developed Bloom’s Taxonomy, a classification of levels of intellectual behavior important in learning. The taxonomy has three domains: the cognitive, affective and psychomotor. Each domain begins with the most basic learning level, and increases to the more intellectual level of learning. As Larsen and Lubkin states, “The teaching-learning process is characterized by multifaceted, dynamic, and interactive exchanges that are fundamental to client-family education and nursing practice” (p. 320). Bloom’s Taxonomy of Education equips nurses with the tools necessary to help patients and family members become successful in coping with their chronic illnesses. The findings of the cognitive domains represent use of knowledge and mental skills of the patient, and is further divided into 6 levels from the lowest level to the highest......

...not anymore the only source of information. Traditional teaching was all about memorization. Bloom’s Taxonomy can be a powerful tool to transform teaching and learning. Bloom's Taxonomy was created in 1956 under the leadership of educational psychologist Dr Benjamin Bloom in order to promote higher forms of thinking in education, such as analyzing and evaluating, rather than just remembering facts. By design, it focuses attention away from content and instruction, and instead emphasizes the “cognitive events” in the mind of a child. And this is no small change. But this kind of adjustment is necessary for 21 century; Bloom’s taxonomy should help teachers to forget traditional teaching but rather what kinds of things students are going to be thinking about and how they’ll prove they understand them. There is 6 levels of Bloom’s taxonomy and all should be used, even memorization in English Language teaching classrooms. Research objectives: Main goal is to examine how Bloom’s taxonomy will help to increase the quality of English Language classroom. Other objectives: 1. To explore Bloom’s taxonomy and to explore Bloom’s taxonomy in English Language classrooms. 2. How Blooms’ taxonomy can affect English Language classrooms. 3. Develop lesson plan. 4. Apply lesson plan in English Language classroom. 5. Measure and compare results of students before and after lesson plan. Research hypothesis: Ho: Bloom’s......

Bloom Taxonomy

...Bloom’s Version Bloom’s Taxonomy was created by Benjamin Bloom in 1956. Bloom identified that there were three categories of learning. Cognitive: Mental skills (knowledge) Affective: Growth in feelings or emotional areas (attitude) Psychomotor: Manual or physical skills (skills). Bloom and his committee created these learning domains strictly for academic context. The design was used to develop a system of learning behaviors to assist in designing educational learning. Teachers can use this theory in the classroom each and every day. These different levels or categories of learning can help the teachers to assess students in different areas. Bloom’s Taxonomy gives more options instead of just test students by written papers or multiple choice questions. Within the domains of course, learning is based on a higher level system. In order for one to attain knowledge on a topic, there has to be some sort of prerequisite knowledge and skills mastered at a lower level. This type of learning creates a more holistic form of education and can really challenge students to learn to the maximum extend of their ability. Knowledge: Remembering previously learned material Comprehension: Grasping the meaning of informational materials Application: The use of previously learned information in new and concrete ways to solve problems Analysis: Break down information into components and examine information to develop conclusions Synthesis: Creatively apply prior...

... Bolanle Oladele NUR/427 Bloom’s taxonomy is framework for understanding the way students learn. This taxonomy is one of the most widely used taxonomies in the field of education, and it is also one of the easiest taxonomies to understand. Although Bloom’s taxonomy was developed in the 1950’s before students began using computers on a regular basis, it is relevant for online learning today. One of the basic questions facing educators has always been “where do we begin in seeking to improve human thinking? Fortunately, we do not have to begin from the scratch in searching for answers to this complicated questions (Forehand, 2012). Discussions during the 1948 Convention of the American Psychological Association led Bloom to spearhead a group of educators who eventually undertook the ambitious task of classifying educational goals and objectives. Their intent was to develop a method of classification for thinking behaviors that were believed to be important in the process of learning. Eventually, this framework became a taxonomy of three domains: the cognitive; knowledge based domain, the affective; attitudinal based domain, and the psychomotor; skills based domain (Forehand, 2012). The applications of the research conducted have been helpful to Nursing Education because it helps to improve patient outcomes. According to Su & Osisek (2011), one of the essential goals for continuing education in nursing is to enhance nurse’s ability to improve patient...

On the first to fourth day of experiment, both containers have the same cases. It has greenish water caused by the algal culture mixed in the water. But after the liquid fertilizer was mixed on the second container, the fish will be noticed having hard time to swim in the container. The fish in the container labelled “2” died at the fifth day the same time where the algae blooms easily caused by the chemicals I have mixed in the water. When the containers where opened one by one starting with labelled “1”. The water seems to be greenish caused of the algal culture, but it doesn’t have the bloom of the algae. The fish in this container seems to die soon if the algae will reproduce more. While opening the container labelled “2”, the water was so smelly to the point where you will cover your nose because of the bad smell from the water. And it has the algal blooms all over the container. The colour became darker compared to the colour of the water from the container “1”. The experiment states that if there will be more nitrogen and phosphorus all over the bodies of water more algal bloom will happen. The experiment explains how algal blooms became harmful for every species on earth. It shows how chemicals help every alga to grow in water bodies. Monitoring the experiment......

...Bloom's Taxonomy and its use in Nursing Education NUR/427 October 27, 2014 Dr. Shannon Smith Bloom's Taxonomy and its use in Nursing Education Registered Nurses (RN) make a commitment to being life-long learners. It is imperative that we stay up-to-date and current on standard practice in order to provide optimal education to our patients in managing chronic illness and disease. The origination, revision and domains: cognitive, affective, and psychomotor aspects of Bloom’s taxonomy in education and its use in nursing education will be the main focus of the following essay. In 1956, Benjamin Bloom along with a group of other educational psychologists published Bloom’s Taxonomy of Educational Objectives. Educators of health use Bloom’s taxonomy to classify skills and learning objective for students. A revision of bloom's taxonomy by Anderson and Krathwohl in 2001 offers a range of three domains for learning which include cognitive, affective and psychomotor (Larkin and Burton, 2008). This system remains more effective to adult learners and is widely used by nurses for patient education. According to (Su and Osisek, 2011), education that is practical, relevant, and organized focusing on the problems and tasks that are applied to real life is preferred by the adult learner. Using this system allows nurses to plan for educational opportunities to a particular problem that is clear, concise and is easily understood by the patient. Using this system also allows......

Blooms Taxonomy

...Bloom's Taxonomy of Education and its effect on Nursing Education "Bloom's Taxonomy has long been the standard framework among clinical nurse educators and staff development coordinators for designing learning experiences or, at the least, has provided general guidance in development of objectives" (Horton, 2007). Bloom’s Taxonomy of educational objectives was developed by Benjamin Bloom in 1956 as a means to classify learning objectives and create learning tools for testing. There are three domains each containing subcategories that make up Bloom’s taxonomy. They are the cognitive domain, the affective domain, and psychomotor domain. Anderson and Krathwokl revised Bloom's taxonomy in 2001. While Bloom's Taxonomy has been a guideline to teach nurses, it can also be utilized as a guide for providing patient education. Each level of taxonomy builds upon the next requiring the learner to achieve a satisfactory level of each before moving forward to the next phase (Horton, 2007). A learner can be in more than one domain at a time as some levels overlap within the respective domain. Each domain and level will be discussed with examples of patient education for diabetes as an example. The cognitive domain includes six categories: remember, understand, apply, analyze, evaluate, and create. When a patient presents with a chronic illness, it has a huge impact on the patient and family. As teaching begins, the patient is given information that they are expected to remember for......

...Blooms Research and Response Carrie Cherrie NUR/427 July 2, 2015 Lois Manning Blooms Research and Response Blooms taxonomy was created in 1956 under the leadership of educational psychologist Dr. Benjamin Bloom. (The Cognitive Domain, n.d.) An essential goal in nursing is to continue education to enhance the nurse’s ability to improve patient care outcomes. Bloom’s theory of education provides the guidelines to promote higher forms of thinking, such as analyzing and evaluating rather than just remembering facts. (The Cognitive Domain, n.d.) The revised Bloom theory provides the framework for nurses to transfer their knowledge to everyday practice. The application of research conducted in Bloom’s taxonomy on nursing education focuses on teaching, organize lesson plan, assess and evaluate. The application of the research is also used to create learning objectives and instructional outlines for written educational materials. (Su & Osisek, 2011) For example, nurses have to teach patients about different disease processes and need to have the knowledge to know how to effectively teach a patient. Bloom identified three domains of educational activities or learning categories. The three domains are cognitive, affective, and psychomotor. The first domain is cognitive, which involves knowledge and the development of intellectual skills. (Su & Osisek, 2011) There are six major categories of cognitive processes, ranging from the simplest to complex. ......

...Draw on Bloom's taxonomy to demonstrate the value of thinking about thinking. Good morning/afternoon/evening, wherever this presentation finds you. I will be drawing on Bloom’s taxonomy to understand and demonstrate the importance of thinking about thinking. I will be discussing a brief history surrounding the taxonomy, what it means today, the different levels of thinking involved and how they differ, plus demonstrate how we can reach sophisticated thinking within academia and our lives using fictional examples. First, a bit of history to understand the subject at hand. The original framework was conceived as a means of measuring educational objectives. Benjamin S. Bloom initiated the idea, beginning in 1949, with a final draft published in 1956 (Krathwohl, 2002). Initially, the term taxonomy was unfamiliar as an education term and misunderstood, receiving little attention at the time (Krathwohl, 2002). The revised framework, was developed 45 years later by Anderson and Krathwohl in 2001 in order to fit the more outcome-focused modern educational objectives (Huitt, 2011). The differing frameworks are illustrated and you can see the similarities between the two. They are arranged in a hierarchy from less to more complex. I like the acronyms used here from LOTS (lower order thinking skills) to HOTS (higher order thinking skills). Further to revision of the taxonomy, Anderson and Krathwohl added a conceptualisation of knowledge dimensions (as shown) within which these......

...simply "the Handbook" below). Although named for Bloom, the publication followed a series of conferences from 1949 to 1953, which were designed to improve communication between educators on the design of curricula and examinations.[2] [3] It refers to a classification of the different objectives that educators set for students (learning objectives). Bloom's Taxonomy divides educational objectives into three "domains": Cognitive, Affective, and Psychomotor (sometimes loosely described as knowing/head, feeling/heart and doing/hands respectively). Within the domains, learning at the higher levels is dependent on having attained prerequisite knowledge and skills at lower levels.[4] A goal of Bloom's Taxonomy is to motivate educators to focus on all three domains, creating a more holistic form of education.[1] A revised version of the taxonomy was created in 2000.[5] [6] [7] Bloom's Taxonomy is considered to be a foundational and essential element within the education community as evidenced in the 1981 survey significant writings that have influenced the curriculum: 1906-1981, by H.G.

Blossom's Taxonomy is named after Benjamin Bloom, an analyst who in 1956 added to the arrangement of addressing as indicated by six levels of larger amount considering. Most if not all instructors are taught to utilize Bloom's Taxonomy in planning lesson targets for their understudies. On the other hand, most smart homes have not been taught how to utilize Bloom's Taxonomy in conversing with their youngsters. In the event that it is useful for school setups, it is clearly also useful for smart homes (Anderson, 2009). "Smart Home" is the term regularly used to characterize a home that has machines, lighting, warming, aerating and cooling, TVs, PCs, amusement sound and video frameworks, security, and camera frameworks that are fit for corresponding with each other and can be controlled remotely by a period plan, from any room in the home, and additionally remotely from any area on the planet by telephone or web (Miller, 2015).
