Knowing is Half the Battle! Understanding and Using Depth of Knowledge

Wed, Jul 29, 2020 · 12:00 PM · Arizona (MDT)
About This Webinar

What is depth of knowledge? How does depth of knowledge define and determine the depth and extent students must understand and use their learning in a certain context? How does Webb's DOK designate the level of depth of knowledge demanded by standards, lessons, and assessments? Why is the DOK Wheel inaccurate? Learn how to use Webb's DOK Levels as a multi-tiered system of support to set learning goals and targets, identify and address gaps in learning, and guide students to demonstrate and communicate their learning up to and beyond the learning expectation set by standards.

Instructional Coach, Professional Development Specialist
I have over 20 years experience in the field of Education as a classroom teacher and state administrator. I started my career in Arizona as a classroom teacher before transitioning to AZ State Department of Education as the State Supervisor for Education and Training. I relocated to the Great State of Idaho at the end of 2018. I am currently serving the Jerome School District as the Instructional Coach and the Professional Development Training Specialist. During my tenure at the state level I had the pleasure of working with many LEAs and many different program areas from CTE to Title I. I had the pleasure to sit on numerous boards that helped further educational opportunities for all students in my state and national level. I look forward to continuing my work with teachers and students within the Idaho education system to help advance our skills to better serve the teachers and students in our local districts.
