1. Надкембриджский PET

Если изначальное задание требовало в основном наличие познавательных навыков простейшего, первого (узнавание известного) уровня по таксономии Блума, то мы из него сделали второй (понимание). На небольшое перефразирование исходного текста пока потрачено пару часов, хотя, конечно, это задание можно усложнять бесконечно.

Если в оригинале для выполнения задания вам достаточно запомнить или выписать (take notes) ключевые английские слова из каждого предложения в первой части (6-10) и просто их найти (узнать) во второй (A-H), то в надкембриджской версии вам придётся формировать невербальное понимание ключевых моментов первой части, а значит заметки можно делать на родном языке.
