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.
