Make returning back to school fun and educational by incorporating the prompts of Depth and Complexity and Content Imperatives! This pack (part of a much larger bundle) offers Depth and Complexity frames and task cards to get your kids communicating, writing, reading, and thinking! Get your students to clearly understand your routines and procedures in the classroom and allow them to be a part of the process too!
Never used Depth and Complexity icons or frames in your classroom? No problem! None of your students are identified as GATE? Still not a problem! This packet is for all students and detailed directions are included for each page. I’ve used frames and the prompts of Depth and Complexity with all of my students (GATE or not), and they really enjoy it!
This pack includes:
+ 1 Depth and Complexity Note Taking Organizer
+3 Different Frames featuring Depth and Complexity (new icons included) and the Content Imperatives
+3 Frames (same as above) which include cooperative learning structures built in: Keep students engaged in a team dynamic as they learn to work together.
+ Task cards to use in addition to or instead of the frames (2 different styles): Use as a way to get students communicating with each other and practicing the icons
+ Depth and Complexity and Content Imperative Chart with a short summary of each icon (including new prompts) to use for each activity
+ 2 “Suggestions for Use” pages with detailed explanations of how I use these activities in the classroom as well as information on the cooperative learning structures included.
****The Larger Bundle includes 24 more pages with lots of activities and games. You can see this bundle by clicking on the link below.
