What is it?
Record your definition of "cognitive rigor."
Rigor (n.) - the quality
of being extremely
thorough, exhaustive or accurate
Read, "The Ant and
the Grasshopper," and
write two questions.
Barbara Blackburn's Definition
Her definition of rigor has a sharp focus on instruction.
Creating an environment in which:
each student is expected to learn at high levels.
each student is supported so he or she can learn at high levels.
each student demonstrates learning at high levels.
Literacy in the content areas
Balance of informational and literary texts
WEBB'S DOK Levels
-type of thinking (verbs) required to complete a task
Argue in writing and speaking
-how deeply you have to understand the content to successfully interact with it
-how complex or abstract the content is
DOK = Depth & Complexity
The intended student learning outcomes determine the DOK level. What is the mental processing that must occur?
While verbs may appear to point to a DOK level, it is what comes after the verb that is the best indicator for the rigor/DOK level.
Describe the process of photosynthesis.
Describe how the democrats and republicans of today are alike and different.
Describe the most significant effect of WWII on the nations of Europe.
Where do your questions land?
What are some ways your new found knowledge may impact your instruction?
