Product Description
This Engine-Uity Reading Center (we call it a Porta-Center) explores "The Legend of the Bluebonnet" by Tomie de Paola. It contains:

(1) a Worksheet (Knowledge and Comprehension levels of Bloom's Taxonomy),
(2) an Answer Key for the Worksheet,
(3) eight uniquely shaped task cards (two each from the Application, Analysis, Synthesis, and Evaluation levels of Bloom's Taxonomy),
(4) a comprehensive Teachers Guide,
(5) and a colorful folder cover to help you put together and implement the center.

As the name implies, this is a PORTABLE literature center: one that is ideal for individualized reading or for reading groups. If the student can read "The Legend of the Bluebonnet" independently, she can do the center. First, she reads the entire story. Second, she takes the reading test (aka the Worksheet) to show that she has understood what she has read. If she answers most of these questions correctly, the student then chooses one of the task cards and does a project that requires her to go deeper into and farther beyond the story than do traditional study guides. (After all, this is BLOOM'S TAXONOMY.) Finally, she shares what she has discovered by means of the oral, visual, written, kinesthetic, or technological product that the task specifies.

SUGGESTION: When you print the task cards use heavy, colored paper. You may also want to laminate
