Differentiate your instruction by using The Pyramid of Knowledge template! The POK allows for individual student choice and pace while providing DOK tasks at each level. For example, tasks at the bottom level may include worksheets, flashcard practice, games, skill practice and study practice. At the next level up, activities might include classifying and organizing, comparisons, summarizing, interpreting, or predicting. Activities in the third level might include a choice between investigations, opportunities to cite evidence, drawing and defending conclusions, developing logical arguments. The activity at the top level would be a long term project in which students research and plan a presentation using information from the lower levels of the pyramid.
