Sharing the Depth of Knowledge Wheel With Students

In my experience, students like using the DoK wheel to figure out how it aligns with their assignments. They also enjoy using it to develop their own questions to ask their peers. These kinds of activities ask students to critically think about what kinds of questions they will ask, and in doing so, engage in rich metacognitive learning experiences.
This can be particularly empowering as students are increasingly faced with the rigors of high stakes testing. Many assessments require students to critically analyze texts, make inferences, prove their responses using textual evidence, develop a claim or analyze an author’s claim, and make comparisons.
