SOLO Taxonomy and Making Meaning Bk 1 Cover
Textual literacy is a cognitively demanding activity, requiring students to make meaning of many aspects of a text such as its purpose, audience, ideas, language features and structure. This series offers innovative and rewarding strategies for supporting this activity with visual maps and self assessment rubrics built from SOLO Taxonomy. By unpacking different learning verbs and text structures, these maps and rubrics help to scaffold the deep understanding of text that students need.
