SOLO Taxonomy in Learning Support Cover
Designing ecologies for learning support that set suitably high and realistic expectations for achievement is of immense importance to students with special education needs, as well as to their teachers and families. In this book, three educator authors draw on their wealth of experience to demonstrate how SOLO Taxonomy can be and has been used to create those ecologies in combination with existing learning support frameworks. This powerful model helps to make learning outcomes visible to all those participating in learning support.
