In Full Bloom
A Thinking Approach to Teaching Literature

It outlines a literacy program based on Benjamin Bloom’s six levels of cognitive thinking, and contains interactive literacy tasks to capture students’ interest and develop in them a lifelong love of reading.

- Based on Bloom’s Taxonomy
- Flexible – tasks can be used as and when the teacher chooses
- Fun! (for students and teachers)
- Gives a suggested implementation procedure
- Includes assessment suggestions and checklists to record which activities students have completed
