DOK and Writing Rubrics

Zoom Session - August 7th

Workshop Description & Overview

AUDIENCE: Targeted for ELA Teachers in Grades 6-12, but is appropriate for any ELA teacher in grades K-12.


DESCRIPTION:


Morning Session: Depth of Knowledge- 8:30-11:30 am

Depth of Knowledge (DOK) is an essential part of assessment development. In this session, participants will learn how the depth of knowledge a question requires reflects the way in which students process information. We will look at the role critical thinking plays in answering higher DOK questions. Participants will have the opportunity to review questions for DOK, as well as, develop their own questions at different levels of DOK.


Afternoon Session: Using Rubrics in the Writing Classroom- 12:30-3:30 pm

There is a strong connection between using rubrics and achieving success in writing. Rubrics, however, are more than a checklist or a tool to make grading easier. In this session, participants will learn how to create an effective rubric for use in the writing classroom. We will also look at how using a rubric allows for greater growth and achievement in writing. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss the benefits and challenges of using writing rubrics as well as how to introduce rubrics across their teams and subject areas.
