Objective Tests
(5)The series of OBJECTIVE TESTS, which cover The Watsons as chapter-by-chapter quizzes and as a whole book test, do not require story interpretation but rather check for FACTUAL story comprehension. The goal of this component is to build a strong foundation for progression to the higher level thinking skills.

Thinking and Writing Skills
(6)The activities in THINK, WRITE, CREATE, both chapter-by-chapter and whole book, require students to engage the higher level thinking skills of Bloom's Taxonomy. These open-ended prompts cover a range of difficulties from basic to challenges for gifted students. The items address various Common Core Standards skills such as interpretive thinking, character analysis, sequencing, vocabulary building, point of view, compare/contrast, and theme. Many are cross-curricula.

Graphic Organizers for Writing
