  • Wows the audience
  • Demonstrates to the audience the key ideas, themes, issues, for what’s being studied at a complex level of thinking
  • Explains in no more than two sentences how the assignment allowed you to comprehend the subject to which you responded, using the terms comprehension, analysis, and evaluation
  • Explain what you learned to another student using Bloom’s higher level thinking terms and apply it to another topic beyond the one studied
