NEW DATE #11469 Depth of Knowledge

At the heart of our Illinois Learning Standards is the need to increase the level of rigor in our classrooms for ALL students. Norman Webb’s Depth of Knowledge (DOK) Framework has become one of the key tools educators can employ to analyze the cognitive demand (complexity) intended in our Standards, by our curricular activities, and our assessment tasks. The standards alone do not bring rigor to our classrooms. DOK categorizes tasks by different levels of cognitive expectations, or depth of knowledge, required to successfully complete a task.

During this workshop, we will explore:

  • What is DOK? Why use DOK in your classrooms?
  • Articulate the DOK Framework with content-specific descriptions for use in the classroom.
  • Achieve a common understanding of DOK and how it relates to Common Core/PARCC.
  • Provide examples/activities/strategies implementing DOK.
  • How to building COGNITIVE RIGOR in your classrooms.

Date and cost change #11451 ELA Standards: Speaking and Listening

The ELA Speaking and Listening Standards address our students’ ability to listen to and discuss texts that are read aloud or information that is presently orally, in order to gain information. These standards overlap with the ELA reading, language, and writing standards. They cannot be viewed as six separate silos.

Come and join me as we learn how to integrate the Speaking and Listening Standards into your lessons.

“The speaking and listening standards expect students to participate in rich, structure conversations in which they are building on the ideas of others and speaking in complete sentences. Teachers need to create models and routines for deliberate and intentional dialogue that builds bridges to the students’ reading and writing.

To build a foundation for college and career readiness, students must have ample opportunities to take part in a variety of rich, structured conversations-as part of a whole class, in small groups, and with a partner.
