This session focuses on the research framework that supports the teaching and learning of language and literacy through the application of Webb’s Depth of Knowledge methodology. Webb (1997) developed a process and criteria for systematically analyzing the alignment between standards and standardized assessments, called Depth of Knowledge (DOK). The DOK model can be used to analyze the cognitive expectation demanded by standards, curricular activities, and assessment tasks (Webb, 1997). Participants will explore how the DOK model can be applied to the bilingual, ESL, and Spanish classroom, and how teachers can learn to ascribe a cognitive demand level and DOK category in order to differentiate language and content instruction for second language learners.
Maximum of 35 participants. Each additional participant $50.00.
