Cognitive verbs can be identified across each of the three dimensions of the Australian Curriculum. They signal the type of mental operations that students need to use when demonstrating what they know, understand and can do. The cognitive verb resources support teachers in the explicit teaching of thinking. The following sections contain links to advice and resources to support planning for cognitive verbs.
Note: These cognitive verb resources are for use with the P–10 Australian Curriculum. The cognitive verb glossaries for Years 11–12 students are available under the Teaching tab for each of the senior subjects.
Further resources coming soon.
