Instructional Ideas
  • Invite pupils to work with partners or in small groups to develop and answer the questions
  • Take some time as a class to pick apart example questions that students come up with; you can discuss if they really meet certain levels of Bloom's and how an individual might answer the questions
Classroom Considerations
  • Note that, since this is part of a unit, the plan says that learners will create questions for their own test during this assignment
  • You may need to spend additional time explaining the different levels of Bloom's before sending learners off to create questions that correspond with each level
Pros
  • Provides an example question chart with levels of Bloom's and questions clearly laid out
  • See the materials for a graphic organizer that students can use to develop their questions
Cons
  • None
