After reading the anti-bullying tale called ‘Mouse Mother’, students will respond to six Bloom’s Taxonomy questions.

The teacher can use the questions as listed on the link called “Writing assignment: Mouse Mother.”

Alternatively, the teacher can print off the downloadable free worksheet called “Let’s write about the anti-bullying tale called ‘Mouse Mother’.”

What’s the story about?

Story Description: This is an adaptation of a story that comes from the oral traditions of Africa. It is used with permission of Opalanga Pugh, a griot of the African culture. Prior to her death in 2010, Opalanga traveled around the United States, sharing the traditional stories of Africa.

This story perfectly demonstrates a character Self-Mentoring as she remembers to breathe, gives herself a Pep Talk inside her head, relies on her Inner Wisdom, and comes up with a brilliant solution to get her attacker to leave her and her loved ones alone.
