Translate: I like dogs.
(A mí) me gustan los perros. Explanation: To say "I like", we conjugate the verb "gustar" and add an Indirect Object Pronoun (IOP). We conjugate the verb "gustar" in reference to the Direct Object; the dogs. Since 'dogs' is plural, we add -n, making "gustan." Then, we add an IOP before the verb; in this case, 'I' is the indirect object. Now we have 'me gustan.' Finally, we refer to the DO one more time for clarification and emphasis - 'los perros.' This sentence translates directly as, "the dogs are pleasing to me," but in Spanish, this is how we express a like or love for things!

What is Bloom's Taxonomy, and what is its purpose in classroom instruction?
Bloom's Taxonomy is a classification system of cognitive skills. The system consists of 6 categories: remembering, understanding, applying, analyzing, evaluating and creating. These categories range from the most basic cognitive skill (remembering) to the most advanced (creating). Action verbs can be classified using this system based on the "brain power" required to do them. For example, the verbs recall, define, and state are usually classified under 'remembering,' while verbs like compose, build and construct are typically classified under 'creating.' In classroom instruction, teachers use Bloom's Taxonomy to write content and/or language objectives for their lessons. Content objectives let the teacher (and, if the teacher makes them explicit, the students) know what students should be able to accomplish by the end of the lesson. An example of a math lesson plan using a verb from Bloom's Taxonomy would be, "students will be able to (SWBAT) SOLVE and two-step addition word problem using a mental strategy." Solve could be classified a number of ways, but is typically classified as applying or anaylzing.
