ANALYSING - Organising the Information

Comprehension Activities for non fiction text - Bloom's Taxonomy

Non fiction text presents us with information.  Analysing that information involves looking more closely at the detail and the way it has been put together, organising it or reorganising it to show patterns, connections, cause and effect relationships and by so doing prepares the way for explanation and interpretation.


In the example above the reader has been asked to extract from the text the physical and behavioural features of the kookaburra and interpret how these features help the bird to survive in their chosen environment. The use of graphic organisers – information webs, mind maps, whatever you want to call them – provide opportunities to think about information differently, to play around with relationships and connections and arrive at explanations and interpretations.
