SOLO Taxonomy in the Social Sciences shares practical strategies for using SOLO to enhance students’ outcomes at each stage of their social inquiry, including when they collect quantitative and qualitative data and analyse their findings to identify causes, predict occurrences and develop evidence-based intervention programmes to address the phenomena in some way. Maintaining a strong focus on what actually happens in the classroom, the book is enriched by examples of student work that has resulted from SOLO-designed social inquiry.

She has published articles on thinking, learning, e-learning and gifted education, and has written curriculum material for government and business.

Craig Perry has been an educator in New Zealand high schools since 2000, teaching geography and the social sciences. He has a passion for making learning visible for students so that they can become active and engaged participants in their own learning. Since meeting Pam Hook in 2006, Craig has made SOLO Taxonomy part of his teaching as a powerful framework that helps him and his students achieve this outcome. While still a classroom teacher, he has also been moving towards teaching teachers and is grateful for the opportunities he has had to present his thinking at several New Zealand conferences.
