Levels of Thinking

Students often need to start with simply remembering details and understand their importance before moving on to the more difficult, analytical levels of thinking. This lesson breaks down the questions using Bloom's Revised Taxonomy so you can help your students start thinking about the chapter in deeper and more meaningful ways.

Level 1 - Remember

  • This chapter begins at night, and there are new conflicts developing. What conflict takes place above the island that night?
  • The boys, on their hunt for the beast, go to a part of the island they haven't explored before. What do they find there?
  • At the beginning of the chapter, why is the signal fire no longer lit?

Level 2 - Understand

  • The boys organize an island-wide hunt for the dangerous beasts they believe are lurking in the jungle. Explain what triggers this frantic search.
  • Ralph and Jack lead a group of boys on an expedition. Explain how the boys behave once the urgency of their mission has passed.
  • Why do Sam and Eric believe the dead soldier is a beast?
