Modelling Success

The Grade Four students have been inquiring into the central idea Exploration can lead to discoveries, opportunities and new understandings.  As they come to the end of their unit we will be asking them to create a 'live museum exhibit' of a chosen explorer and use the SOLO Taxonomy to guide their research and presentations.  To give the students an example of what success looks like in this task, Mr. Hughes, Ms. Sandra, Ms. Mollie and Mr. Peto chose their own explorers and demonstrated what the task could look like.  Students assessed the four teachers using the SOLO Taxonomy and looked for evidence of them connecting ideas and going further.  Look out for the Grade Four blogpost of the students' final exhibits!

You can read more on the explorers chosen by our four teachers by clicking the links below.

The SOLO Taxonomy will help students plan their research and think deeply about their explorers
