As a graduate student volunteering for the adult classes, I often wondered how the balancing of school, work, and life was for an adult student but quintessentially why education was not a priority in the growing-up phase of their lives. It seems that the working world taught them the hard way by beating them up every work day for not having an education. The challenges were many and went both ways for the adult teachers as well as the adult students; teachers for adult learners had to be supportive & encouraging, put up with ingenuity and not to mention the resources made available for the adult students. One such resource was Bloom’s Taxonomy used effectively to promote higher forms of thinking in education as well as a basis for designing educational, training, and learning processes. Bloom’s Taxonomy identifies three domains of learning or educational activities namely:
- Cognitive: mental skills (knowledge)
- Affective: growth in feelings or emotional areas (attitude or self)
- Psychomotor: manual or physical skills (skills)
