Reading Sage: Webb's Depth of Knowledge (DOK) | Bloom's Taxonomy vs. Norman Webb's depth of knowledge

The Common Core Standards are the cornerstones of the Smarter Balanced and PARCC assessments, Webb’s Depth of Knowledge (scale of cognitive demand) and Blooms Revised Taxonomy (levels of intellectual ability) are the framework and the structures that will be used to evaluate students. Assessing curriculum, developing formative assessments, evaluation curriculum, and evaluation of students knowledge at the highest levels is being shared by two progressive cognitive matrices. Depth of knowledge, and complexity of knowledge is the heart of the more rigorous assessments being implemented in 2014. They share many ideas and concepts yet are different in level of cognitive demand, level of difficulty, complexity of verbs vs. depth of thinking required, and the scale of cognitive demand. Teachers need to learn how the frameworks are used to develop curriculum and how to use them to enhance instructions. Teachers and students can use Blooms Questions Stems and Webb’s DOK questions stems to create higher order thinking and improve achievement. 80% of the PARCC assessments will be based on the highest levels of blooms and the deepest levels of Webb’s DOK. Are you ready to use the DOK or Blooms daily in your class?

by Emily Short

 

"Interactive fiction is increasingly being used in junior high and high school classrooms to encourage reading and teach problem-solving skills; it is also approached critically in college and graduate courses on digital and new media studies, and used as an example project in courses on computer programming and game design.

 

"What follows is just a short list of the courses I know about; there may be more out there."

Mastery Learning and Formative Assessment for Engagement

Mastery Learning and Formative Assessment for Engagement | AdLit | Scoop.it

With this strategy, teachers first organize the concepts and skills they want students to learn into learning units that typically involve about a week or two of instructional time. Following initial instruction on the unit, teachers administer a brief quiz or assessment based on the unit's learning goals. Instead of signifying the end of the unit, however, this assessment's purpose is to give students information, or “feedback,” on their learning. To emphasize this new purpose Bloom suggested calling it a formative assessment, meaning “to inform or provide information” (see Scriven, 1967). A formative assessment identifies for students precisely what they have learned well to that point, and what they need to learn better (Bloom, Hastings, & Madaus, 1971).

 

Remember Daniel Pink:  Autonomy, Mastery, Purpose?  This would be the MASTERY piece.  When we teach and move along, pressured by the need to cover, we sabbotage engagement .  For some kids, it feels disrespectful.  Teaching for mastery is a must if learning is our goal.

Seeking ways to differentiate instruction in your classroom? Look here for quality outsources on a complex topic. Ferlazzo's "power-packed line-up" of guest responders speak to the issue. Additionally you'll find a compilation of Best Resources on the subject.    

David Miles's curator insight, April 19, 2014 9:10 PM

I find it challenging to work out how to differentiate (or whether I am differentiating) lessons in secondary school classes where everything is driven by the needs of an examination system. This idea, that there are multiple incarnations of differentiation, I find quite helpful.
