Bloom's Taxonomy and Pupil Generated Questions

Pupils created their own questions using Blooms about the Declaration of Arbroath
  I started by using a simple PowerPoint of the different levels and examples of questions and asked my P5 pupils to work in pairs to come up with their own questions about a subject in their topic work. This was quite tricky the first time but much easier the second time round. A good example was when we were looking at the Wars of Independence and we discussed the declaration of Arbroath. The children talked about how they had found it easier to create questions for most types except for analysis and evaluation, so I decided to focus on those in our next lessons.
