This pack contains Bloom's Taxonomy activities about Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K Rowling. This children's favourite story can be used in many ways in your classroom, from encouraging reading to creating a classroom theme. The activities involve identifying key characteristic traits, drawing images based on reading visualisation, making judgements about characters and creating new ideas that stem from the book content.
Using Blooms Taxonomy Framework, this resource will enable you to use it as a tool for higher order thinking. For best results, students should have finished reading the entire book before commencing this table. Alternatively, you can limit the categories they can complete as they progress through the book as the Knowledge, Understand and Apply columns are generally for the beginning chapters.
An example of a H.O.T activity from the Evaluate Task asks students to rate the effectiveness of house points and list three ways to improve this school management system. This will make students think about its fairness and help find a solution in making it a better system.
This framework can be used as an independent task or a homework extension for students that need an extra challenge. It allows you to date when they have completed a task so you can keep track of their progress. In the classroom, I like them to finish at least 3 activities before advancing to the next skill set.
As a heads up, some of these activities will prove to be of more value when completed together as a whole class, and therefore you may want to select those activities and use them as class competitions or whole class learning experiences.
