Macbeth - Levels of Understanding
Using Bloom's Taxonomy to Explore Literature
Help students build the skills to critically evaluate literature and develop the knowledge they need to be college and career ready. Levels of Understanding takes Blooms Taxonomy out of the theoretical realm and helps you put it into practice in your classroom. Every unit contains questions that lead students from basic comprehension to textual evaluation. Comprehension questions assess students basic understanding of the text. Reader Response questions allow students to make personal judgments and connections. Analysis questions require students to examine how various techniques and literary or theatrical devices create specific textual effects. Synthesis questions require students to integrate knowledge and ideas to form conclusions about themes, motifs, style, etc. Evaluation questions challenge students to determine whether a particular aspect of a text is effective or ineffective, necessary or redundant, worthwhile or superfluous, etc.
