SOLO Taxonomy Resources for Primary Schools

Essential Resources SOLO series support teachers to use SOLO Taxonomy (a powerful model of learning) to evaluate the impact of their teaching on student achievement – when shifting student understanding from surface to deep outcomes.

The resources include learning strategies for all phases of the learning process (surface, deep and transfer). The series help make learning visible to students and teachers and in doing so encourage feedback, student agency and self-regulation.

Teachers use the SOLO series to support critical, creative and collaborative thinking. The strategies include SOLO levelled graphic organisers, templates and writing frames for academic language (verbs and connectives) and for SOLO hexagonal thinking. They are accompanied by SOLO differentiated rubrics (success criteria) to help students reflect on “how well is it going” and “where to next”.
