This circular poster is based on Webb's Depth of Knowledge which provides a vocabulary and a frame of reference when thinking about our students and how they engage with the content. DOK offers a common language to understand "rigor," or cognitive demand, in assessments, as well as curricular units, lessons, and tasks. Webb developed four DOK levels that grow in cognitive complexity and provide educators a lens on creating more cognitively engaging and challenging tasks.
This poster is broken down into four subject areas as well as Webb's four levels of engagement. It provides questioning stems, key words and phrases that will help facilitate small group as well as whole class discussion.
