You have a question in front of you. Read the question. Decide (in your head) if it is DOK 1,2,3. Don’t tell anyone. When the teacher tells you, get up and put it on the board where you think it belongs.
What is the DOK? Look for clues. Example: What conclusions can you draw about the lives' of the Pharaohs based on the findings from their tombs? What do you notice about the furnishings of the Pharaohs’ tombs? In Egyptian Society, who was responsible for charting the movement of the stars and Nile River?
What are the Clues? (underlined words are clues) What conclusions can you draw about the lives' of the Pharaohs based on the findings from their tombs?

Everyone will be given a “sentence starter”. Read the question stem. Think about something we have learned from Egypt in the last week. Now take 30 seconds to write down the complete sentence on a notecard. Write the DOK Level you think it is on the back. Stand up and place it on DOK sheet 1,2, or 3.
Lets go thru these as a class. Everyone find a question from the board. Read it aloud. Tell us the DOK you think it is. Class votes. Check the back. Put it on the correct DOK.
Why do we need to be able to “do” DOK Levels 1,2, and 3? Help us understand our assignments Do better on TCAP and other tests Be a smarter person Get further in school Use our brains so they don’t go away
