List of approaches to phenomena. We might ask them questions in tandem, comparatively, and other things. What do these (coded?) approaches tell us about the ways we read the world? This is inspired by Bloom’s Taxonomy of Action Verbs Requiring Cognitive Outcomes, an elementary instructional resource created by Benjamin Bloom in 1959. However, I think it's time to radicalize Bloom. Find me on one of the various lines of communication to suggest something or have a conversation about it! I think the next step is to cite their sources and discursive histories if relevant.
