In 1965 Benjamin Bloom publishes a book that would largely influence curriculum theory and practice for many years. Indeed, the book was published several times and translated into several languages, and it was read in faculties of education, teacher training programs and schools all over the world. The book influenced almost every aspect of formal education, from the way curricula were designed at national and provincial ministries of education to the way teachers were evaluating student performance at the classroom level. It is well known that Bloom and his associates identified three main domains of educational goals: cognitive, affective and psychomotor. What is not well known is the history that led to the development of this framework.
