  1. Deconstructing Depth of Knowledge: A Method and Model for Deeper Teaching and Learning

    Norman Webb’s depth of knowledge has become a priority in education to describe levels of cognitive complexity, but schools often misapply the framework in practice. Author Erik M Francis clears up this confusion with his book, Deconstructing depth of knowledge: A method and model for deeper teaching and learning. This resource clearly defines depth of knowledge (DOK) and explains how the DOK levels can inform educators’ delivery and intensity of instruction. Through the method and model that Francis presents, readers will be able to determine the cognitive demand of academic standards, activities and text items and provide responsive, supportive and academically rigorous learning experiences for all their students.
