SOLO Taxonomy in Physical Education Bk 1 Cover
 
This series shows how SOLO Taxonomy, a simple but effective model of learning outcomes, can be used to build understanding in relation to each of the key competencies and PE strands of the New Zealand Curriculum. SOLO scaffolds learning with maps and self assessment rubrics carefully designed for particular learning experiences and levels of understanding, and each book contains a generous selection of examples demonstrating how these invaluable resources can be and are used effectively in any movement context.

Ages: 12-15

About the Authors

Nicola Richards has taught physical education and health in New Zealand schools for the past 18 years. She is currently teaching at St Andrew’s College in Christchurch, where she has recently taken on the role of SOLO coordinator. She is passionate about creating meaningful physical education and encouraging literacy through movement contexts. As she also enjoys developing new resources for her department, Nicola leapt at the opportunity to co-author a book in an area to which she is so strongly committed.
Pam Hook is an educational consultant (HookED Educational Consultancy, www.pamhook.com), who works with New Zealand and Australian schools to develop curricula and pedagogies for learning to learn based on SOLO Taxonomy. She has published articles on thinking, learning, e-learning and gifted education, and has written curriculum material for government and business. As well as authoring and co-authoring more than 15 books on SOLO Taxonomy (some of which have been translated into Danish), she is co-author of two science textbooks widely used in New Zealand secondary schools. She is also a popular keynote speaker at conferences.
