SOLO HOT maps - for Biology

(0)
Variety of SOLO style flow charts (sequencing, Compare and Contrast, Describe). Mainly based on Biology concepts but could easily be adapted for any other subject. Perfect for scaffolding students' learning and reaching those ever more challenging higher order thinking skills. Many of the resources are best printed back to back (and often A3). These have been used very successfully with Y7-13 and also staff training. Even if you are not familiar with SOLO taxonomy they are still very useful tools to encourage higher order thinking and consequently the holy grail of challenge!

Can also be used mid way through a lesson as a break activity. Alternatively students can use the cards to quiz each other in groups of four or place cards down on the table and only turn over if they can either recall the definition or the word corresponding to the information on the reverse.

This is a scaffold for providing students with regular no-stakes testing of their Biology glossaries. As such it is best used in conjunction with the GCSE Biology AQA Glossaries. It is best printed A3 size; 2 per page and back to back. It also includes my own marking system codes to allow students to fully analyse their own performance. To reduce the stakes to zero then results should not be collected. This allows students to maximise their long term retention. I have use this type of resource with great effect at KS3, 4 and 5 with small adaptations to suit the relevant glossaries. Excellent method for developing long term retention.

SOLO sequencing activity for practicals

Exactly what it says on the tin! This is an adapted version of a SOLO sequencing HOT map for practicals.It is best printed back to back on A3 paper. Students then plan their practical using one side. Once completed they can then write up their method, comparing this with the original plan.When I have used it I have found students are more likely to write in order to achieve higher SOLO levels.As usual feedback is welcome.

Have put this visual together as part of the Learn to Learn scheme that I am developing at our school. It shows how the 4 main pillars (Independence / Collaboration / Creativity / Communication) support the learning of all subjects and how it is underpinned by a Growth mindset.\nThere are also some levelled criteria available that I have written for each of the 4 pillars.\nPlease let me know how useful you find this.

4 pillar exit passes

(0)
These exit passes are linked to the 4 pillars of Independence, Collaboration, Creativity and Communication. They can be used by students to assess their levels against the 4 pillars criteria (see other resources). We use them in the Learn to Learn scheme that we teach in Y7. I also intend to use them in my science lessons. Please let me know if you find these of any use.
