In this video, students introduce themselves using four of the elements of Depth and the Frame graphic organizer.

• #### Universal Themes 3: Organizing Instruction

In this video, we'll use Universal Theme and Generalizations to organize your instruction at the lesson, unit, or even subject level.

• #### Universal Themes 2: Generating Generalizations

In this video, we'll take students from a very abstract Universal Theme to practical statements known as Generalizations. These are a tool to unlock connections across subjects.

• #### Universal Themes 1: Introduction

Universal Themes, part of the Depth and Complexity framework, give you an easy way to take your lessons across all content areas. In this video, we'll introduce the Themes and start an opening activity.

• #### Moving Up Blooms: Remember and Understand

In this series, we'll be climbing Bloom's Taxonomy to help all students reach the highest levels.

• #### Moving Up Blooms: Create

After climbing all the way up Bloom's Taxonomy, students will now realistically change existing ideas to create something new.

• #### Moving Up Blooms: Evaluate

Build on the "analyze" level of Bloom's to take students up the "evaluate," where they'll form a strong opinion backed up with evidence collected earlier in their climb.

• #### Moving Up Blooms: Apply

Let's explore practical ways to take students to the Apply level of Bloom's Taxonomy while integrating depth and complexity at a high level.

• #### Moving Up Blooms: Analyze

To differentiate for gifted students, we can carefully climb Bloom's taxonomy and combine those thinking skills with the prompts of depth and complexity. Let's look at the Analyze thinking skill.

• #### Multiple Perspectives in Primary

Joelle Trayers shares activities and book recommendations for teaching young students to think using multiple perspectives.

• #### Ethics In The Young Elementary Classroom

Can we get students as young as kindergarten discussing ethical issues? Learn some ideas for integrating these multiple perspective problems throughout your curriculum.
