What educators are saying

I have used these in class and at home. It is a really great way to define higher order thinking questions to parents and developing their understanding of comprehension.
Purchased after utilizing the nonfiction ladders with my students refer to these all the time and I know they will all year long. Thank you!!!


Want to up the rigor in your classroom and get your students answering those higher order thinking questions? Treat questioning like a video game with these Bloom's Ladders for fiction text!

Each ladder has a set of tasks or questions and each student must complete each task to "defeat" the level and move onto the next one!

Check out my Youtube Video to see this product in action.

This product also includes a slightly different version called "How High Can You Go" where there is one task for each level on one card. There's a set for:





Want to JUST focus on the higher order thinking? I've also created a set of 20 task cards specially focused on the last 3 levels of Blooms Taxonomy. I've included both a numbered version and unnumbered version.

There are also a set of Bloom's Taxonomy Display Posters included in this resource. Two different styles are included.

These can be used with ANY fiction passage or text.
