Article Abstract

The quality management concepts of W. Edwards Deming can be combined with Benjamin Bloom�s cognitive taxonomy to improve teaching methods. To integrate these concepts, a quality control sheet is developed to monitor improvement, integrate subject matter with the taxonomy, and document transactions between teacher and student. The control sheet permits the mentor to individualize instruction and reduce the compounding of learning errors while spending less time managing students. Sidebar articles list 12 benefits of combining Deming and Bloom and explain Bloom�s cognitive taxonomy and writing elements.
