Whether you're a Common Core school, a 21st Century school, or just a school that's making it a focus to prepare all learners for their future, you know how essential it is for the teaching and learning to be in the highest levels of thinking everyday. Display these student-friendly (and not too overwhelming) posters in your classroom (or if you're an administrator, purchase these for all the teachers in your building, so there's a set in every classroom) to help you and the students do "the work" of higher level thinking. Gone are the days of mindless worksheets, fact memorization and "I'm done" activities. The Common Core is embedded with phrases like "critical reading"..."evaluate and justify"..."close analysis of the text"..."reasoning and use of evidence"...students need the thinking tools of Webb's Depth of Knowledge to do the necessary thinking work. These posters give them an anchor for that work. This product includes:
1 - Overview on How to Use this Product
4 - Posters for Each of the 4 DOK Levels
8 - Words to Create Bulletin Board Title
1 - Titles "Higher Level Thinking" & "Lower Level Thinking"
1 - Overview on How to Display these in the Classroom
1 - DOK Question Prompt Example
1 - Links to DOK Resources on the Web
1 - How to Purchase Multiple Copies Explanation Page

If you are interested in buying these for your whole school, use the Multiple License option above (where the first is full price and the rest are half price) or use the Purchase Order option, which is a link at the top of the TpT page. A single purchase of this product is a single user/single classroom license. The single user license does not however, allow one to make multiple copies or printings of them for use outside of one classroom, or email or distribute electronically, resell or claim as your own.
If you're a Webb's DOK school, these posters are for you. If your school is still a Bloom's school, check out my Bloom's posters here
