We know that teaching higher order thinking is an important part of helping our students grow and increase rigor.  This course will give you many opportunities  and strategies to accomplish this task. We will also improve the quality of questions posed to students in order to continue to improve these skills.  

Main objectives include:

  • using Webb’s Depth of Knowledge to scaffold students to think more critically,

  • purposefully planning questions in lesson plans, and

  • building rigor in both face to face and virtual environments.
