Bloom's Taxonomy

From wikipedia
Bloom's Taxonomy talks about learning objectives. While not a learning style, it shows steps necessary to have complete understanding of a topic, with rote memory at the top. Colorado State has examples of questions for each of these levels. You might also enjoy reading Dale's Cone, and the Learning Pyramid.

Most people think of Bloom's Taxonomy as a pyramid, but the original one used something similar to a rose. 

Like most things in education, there are criticisms of his taxonomy. You will have to read more about it and judge for yourself. NW Link and Wikipedia are good places to start. Regardless it is interesting to see how you might be able to use it in your classes.
