Using SOLO Taxonomy to Make Observations Like a Scientist
Using SOLO Taxonomy to Make Observations Like a Scientist - How to build on the science capability of gathering and interpreting data in relation to natural phenomena
By Pam Hook, Willem Tolhoek
Discover how productive and rewarding the task of developing curious minds can be. This resource combines SOLO Taxonomy, as an accessible, robust way of making learning visible, with current theories on how students learn and effective pedagogies. Building on Book 1 in this series, it investigates the increasing complexity of the science capability of gathering and interpreting data through a series of simple paired experiments in contexts that are familiar and important to students.
