As you're reading chapter 15 of The Watsons Go to Birmingham-1963, provide your class with this set of questions, designed based off of Bloom's Taxonomy. Six questions are included to deepen your class's understanding of the novel's events. Encourage pupils to use textual evidence to support their answers. A detailed answer guide is provided.
One of the things that makes Bloom's Taxonomy so effective is that it works off different levels of understanding. Test your readers' knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation with these short questions. Consider requiring your class to answer the questions on a separate sheet of paper, as the answer space is very limited.
Help readers learn to create their own open-ended questions for any text you are working with. Using Bloom's Taxonomy, learners begin on the lower levels and work their way up to form questions that focus on synthesis instead of simple reading comprehension. Guided statements will facilitate the process for your class.
Now this is a set of effective reading comprehension questions! As your class progresses through chapter four of Ethan Frome, provide them with these thought-provoking questions, following Bloom's Taxonomy. Readers will recall basic information, make connections, create predictions, and analyze specific elements. A teacher's guide is also included.
Teach not only reading, 'riting, and 'rithmetic, but also today's three Rs as well: reduce, reuse, and recycle! The reasons and ways we can be Earth-friendly are presented with images, text, and video to keep the attention of all types of learners!
Do your class members’ questions lack depth? “Sigh no more . . .sigh no more.” Use a questioning strategy based on Bloom’s taxonomy to encourage readers to create questions that probe the themes of any text.

Pupils are challenged to create questions from their reading using Blooms Taxonomy, identify main ideas and details, create a Venn diagram for the monster of the sea, and use technology for research. The instructor needs to provide the readings, but the source is listed in the materials sections of the plan. This could be easily modified for a research project, or used as a creative writing assignment.

Milkwood, Jerry Spinelli's young adult novel about a boy in Warsaw, Poland during World War II, gives middle schoolers a chance to consider the moral dimensions of decision-making.

Complete directions for the activity and a worksheet are included.
Knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, evaluation.

Students are focused on the big question: What makes a population grow and how could that growth stop? They use these concepts to help answer the big question: carry capacity, density dependent v. density, independent factors, predation and competition. Students look at patterns of exponential growth curve v. logistic growth curve.
