Depth of Knowledge


level Ii

How Much Do You Know?


The Goal:

Did you know that it doesn't matter how much you know about a topic, you can still write about it?  In this lesson you will learn how to identify what you know and don't know about a topic and how to determine what your purpose for writing will be.

"How much you know" about a topic is called your Depth of Knowledge (DOK).



  1. Parents, there is a video for you comparing DOK to Bloom's Taxonomy of Learning.  See Parent Resources to the right.

  2. Students, watch the video below on the basics of depth of knowledge .  

  3. Use the video, word list, and printables to help you answer the questions in the next three assignments.
