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.
Use Bloom's Taxonomy to establish protocols in your classroom so that all readers make personal connections to the literature they are studying.
Seventh graders apply Blooms Taxonomy to analyze a collection of artifacts. They define and discuss the nature of artifacts and work in groups to complete handouts. Students analyze an object (stone pipe) on a mystery artifact analysis sheet.
Seventh graders define metacognition, Bloom's Taxonomy, and artifacts. They, in groups, try to identify a mystery artifact using the Artifact Analysis sheet. They present their findings to the class.
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. The model discussion questions, based on Much Ado About Nothing, are included, as are step-by-step directions and a Bloom’s Taxonomy guide.
Educators can use the Principles of Bloom's Taxonomy as a Guideline for Differentiated Instruction.
Get some eight-armed craziness going in class as your learners explore the fact and myth about octopi with non-fiction sources. 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. Using a cubing strategy, readers choose a topic (stealing, killing, family, war, violence) and use the steps in Bloom's taxonomy to think critically about their issue. Complete directions for the activity and a worksheet are included.
Knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, evaluation. Class members use Bloom's taxonomy to craft six levels of discussion questions for Chris Crowe's novel, Mississippi Trial, 1955.

Candide is a dense text. To assist in analyzing Voltaire's satire, groups employ a cubing strategy based on Bloom's taxonomy. Complete directions for the strategy, a template for the cube, a worksheet, and a topic list are included.
Help your students internalize knowledge by creating activities that utilize higher level thinking skills.

Students, through demonstration and example, write and answer questions at different levels of Bloom's taxonomy.

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.
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.
Students apply Bloom's Taxonomy to reading selections. They prepare questions for each level of Bloom's Taxonomy and exchange them with other groups to answer. They answer another group's questions and report to one another.
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.
