Do you want to amp up the rigor in the conversations that your students are having? Do you want their responses to reading to be meaningful and powerful?
Have them use verbs, response, and question stems based on the 4 levels of the Depth of Knowledge (DOK). I have several copies available for my students at their tables so they can use them any time they are working. All you need to do is print and laminate.
In this resource you get:
-Response Stems (Predicting, Asking, Commenting, Understanding, Connecting, and Summarizing)
-DOK Verbs (Levels 1-4)
-DOK Question Stems (Levels 1-4)
