Welcome to the Engaging Learners Academy Course in Depth of Knowledge!

What if I told you that for the last 10 years we teachers have been misinformed about Depth of Knowledge? That’s right. What if I told you that everything we have thought about DOK, what it is and the messages we have received about it, has been inaccurate and incorrect? What if I told you that Depth of Knowledge was never even meant to be used for instruction? Buckle up because in this course you'll learn how to:


• Use Webb’s DOK Levels as a multi-tiered system of support to identify and address gaps in learning

• Set learning targets

• Encourage students to go beyond the ceiling of assessment set by the learning expectation of standards


K-12 classroom teachers, curriculum developers, and administrators will benefit by learning how to apply Webb's Depth of Knowledge as it was intended – whether they’re teaching online or in the classroom.

2 HOURS OF PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Upon completion of the course each student will receive a certificate documenting 2 hours of professional development.
