"The Fan Club" by Rona Maynard There was a ripple of dry, humorless laughter—almost, Laura thought, like the sound of a rattlesnake. Rachel stood before the class now, her face red, her heavy arms piled with boxes. Diane Goddard tossed back her head and winked at Steve. “Well, well, don’t we have lots of things to show,” said Miss Merrill. “But aren’t you going to put those boxes down, Rachel? “Man, that kid’s dumb,” Steve muttered, and his voice could be clearly heard all through the room. With a brisk rattle, Miss Merrill’s pen tapped the desk for silence. Rachel’s slow smile twitched at the corners. “Hurry and pick them up,” said Miss Merrill sharply. Rachel crouched on her knees and began very clumsily to gather her scattered treasures. “My—my speech is on shells.” A cold and stony silence had settled upon the room. “Lots of people collect shells, because they’re kind of pretty—sort of, and you just find them on the beach.” “Well, whaddaya know!” “Bet she got it at Woolworth’s,” somebody whispered. “Or in a trash dump.”

Are You My Mother? LibriVox The Lottery, by Shirley Jackson Developing Questions for Critical Thinking “Education must be increasingly concerned about the fullest development of all children and youth, and it will be the responsibility of the schools to seek learning conditions which will enable each individual to reach the highest level of learning possible.” Benjamin Bloom Handbook on Formative and Summative Evaluation of Student Learning Bloom’s original taxonomy (developed in the 1950's) divided the way people learn into three domains: cognitive, affective, and psychomotor. In the 1990's Lorin Anderson, a former student of Bloom revised the original cognitive domain. The revised taxonomy is preferred by some educators as a more authentic tool for curriculum planning, instructional delivery, and assessment.
