1 Bloom’s Taxonomy vs. Webb’s Depth of Knowledge Michelle Williams Merrydale Elementary

2 Agenda Introductions Bloom’s Taxonomy and Webb’s Thinking in the Classroom The Seesaw Effect Problem Solving Identifying Misalignments

3 Bloom’s Taxonomy Developed in 1948 by Benjamin Bloom Acquiring knowledge Levels are successive Focuses on students’ cognitive ability or thinking

4 Webb’s Depth of Knowledge Created by Norman Webb Is descriptive and not a taxonomy Measures the depth of knowledge of tasks Verbs alone do not determine the DOK level DOK level is determined by complex thinking and reasoning skills

5 “If you make people think they're thinking, they'll love you; but if you really make them think, they'll hate you.” ― Don Marquis

6 What Does Thinking Look Like in the Classroom? Skillful thinking must be cultivated Model thinking Recognizing how we think Cognition and content are inseparable

7 Types of Thinking Analytical thinking- analyze, compare & contrast, and evaluate information Practical thinking- apply learning to real life scenarios Creative thinking- create, design, imagine, and suppose Research-based- explore and review ideas, models and solution to problems

8 The Seesaw Effect thinking is the process modeled by the teacher problem solving is the product Bloom’s Taxonomy Webb’s Depth of Knowledge

9 Can Students Solve Problems in Text Based Subjects? Abstraction- leaving out one of the characteristics of an item Improving solutions- providing a solution to a problem or asked to improve a solution to a problem Generating ideas- creating analogies and an idea list or representations Relevant/irrelevant information- identifying information need or not need to solve a problem

10 “Readers are plentiful; thinkers are rare.” ― Harriet Martineau “Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason so few engage in it.” ― Henry Ford

11 What Does a Misalignment Look Like? Objective: the learner will explain how schools were different for wealthy and common Aztec children Objective: the learner will solve problems using the tape diagram

12 Contact Information We help teachers TEACH.
