Yeh-Shen: A Cinderella Story From China Reading Response Activities
There are many versions of the Cinderella tale, but this one is believed to be the original version – written 1,000 years before the European one.
Our response activities are structured around the six levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy, a framework for focusing on higher-order thinking skills. The taxonomies (classifications) are arranged from simple and concrete tasks to complex and abstract ones.
- Remembering: The ability to recall or recognize information. This involves memorization and the retrieval of previously learned material.
- Understanding: The ability to comprehend and interpret information. Students at this level demonstrate a grasp of the meaning behind facts and can explain concepts in their own words.
- Applying: The ability to use acquired knowledge in new situations. This involves applying what has been learned to solve problems or complete tasks.
- Analyzing: The ability to break down information into parts and understand the relationships between those parts. This level involves examining and understanding the organizational structure of information.
- Evaluating: The ability to make judgments about the value of ideas, materials, or methods. Students at this level can assess the quality and effectiveness of information or solutions.
- Creating: The ability to synthesize information to produce something new. This involves combining elements to form a new whole, generating original ideas, or creating novel solutions.
There are 3 activities for each level, allowing for individualization and choice.
