The Relationship of the Taxonomy of Objectives with the Guiding Principles in the Selection and Organizing of Contents is the concept I choose, because I believed that taxonomy of objectives has the important role and the most significant things to consider in selection and organizing of contents. Taxonomy according to The Oxford English Minidictionary, 2000 is a scientific classification of organisms. In Principles of Teaching, 2009 by (Author), Taxonomy of objectives is classification of learning into 3 domains namely: (1) cognitive, (2) affective, and (3) psychomotor. Moreover, the researcher defines taxonomy of objectives as classification which has significant role in making specific objectives in imparting knowledge of the students. In today’s generation, students should be taught with specific objectives where in you can motivate them to learn based on their interest, attitudes and feelings. Students may be interested to one specific topic yet they don’t have the passion to do it and have many distractions around them. Through the three domain of classification of learning, the researcher believed that integration of these domains to the selection and organizing of contents would help the teacher point out the target objectives that he/she would like to impart to the students. The three domains have its level from lowest to the highest level. The cognitive domain includes (1) Knowledge or Recall, (2) Comprehension, (3) Application, (4) Analysis, (5) Synthesis, and (6) Evaluation. The affective domain includes (1) Receiving, (2) Responding, (3) Valuing, (4) Organizing, and (5) Characterizing. The Psychomotor domain includes (1) Reflex movements, (2) Basic Fundamental movements, (3) Perceptual, (4) Physical activities, (5) Skilled movements, and (6) Non-discursive communication. These levels have the important role and significant function in motivating the students. Interest and attitudes of the students are also important in selection and organizing of contents. Because the teachers might give lessons which are not relevant to the interest and attitudes of the students and it might result to a worst scenario. Teachers must understand the students’ individuality and must integrate the three domains in the selection and organizing of her lessons.
