A Children’s Guide to SOLO Taxonomy

SOLO Taxonomy is a powerful model of learning that is both easy to use and highly effective in advancing and deepening learning across the curriculum. With A Children’s Guide to SOLO Taxonomy you can introduce children to the fundamentals of this compelling model in an amusing but meaningful way. It follows George’s progress through the five SOLO levels of learning outcomes as he moves from being a scone eater to, ultimately, a scone-making mentor. Full-colour, fun and informative, this resource will be an asset in any primary classroom that has embraced SOLO Taxonomy.

Ages: 4-12 years
