This Knowledge Blooms Fiction Connection Tree is a graphic organizer filled with 6 simple, yet smart, activities that help students to increase their depth of understanding about fictional stories or articles that they have read. The KEY FOCUS is to really get the students to CONNECT the STORY to THEIR OWN LIVES.
The graphic organizer helps to connect to the story to each student's own life experiences, to their own usage of the vocabulary found in the story, and to their own perspectives of the story/article.
This Fiction - Connections Tree is meant to be paired with the Knowledge Blooms - Comprehension Tree graphic organizer, which is available as a free download from the Knowledge Blooms TPT store. Both graphic organizers follow the Bloom's Taxonomy levels of learning. They are designed to deeply expand the depth and breadth of understanding gained by students as they explore fiction writing pieces.
