Whole Learning Approach ®

Combined Approach

Bring participants up to the 3rd Level of Learning (facilitate a process to allow them to know enough so they know what questions to ask and what specific knowledge to seek - not to make them expert in all areas).  This model involves teaching pedagogy utilizing a combination of Bloom's Taxonomy (six thinking skills) and Howard Gardner's Intelligences (seven intelligences), as related to learning styles.

I removed redundancies among  cells, and have evolved the matrix as follows, for use in all of my classes:
