SOLO and Vocabulary Lists
This post provides a summary of the possible assessment criteria for each Grade Level's Unit of Inquiry.
Link to the Elementary Programme of Inquiry.
All students in Kindergarten and Elementary have begun their Units of Inquiry. The SOLO Taxonomy is designed to take students on a journey from first developing surface level knowledge-based learning outcomes and progress to connecting and extending their knowledge in order to take action. This enables students to 'go deeper' and process their knowledge to develop conceptual understanding. This is scaffolded and guided using an inquiry process illustrated in the image, below.
Below you will see the possible assessment criteria developed through the SOLO Taxonomy for this unit of inquiry. It is important to note that in alignment with the Enhanced PYP, students may develop the SOLO taxonomy by co-constructing this with their teachers. This is to provide students with agency - choice, voice and ownership throughout the process of their learning. Therefore the SOLO co-constructed by students may look slightly different this one. This learning progression and vocabulary list is developed so you can support your daughter's learning at home. These can also be found on each individual Grade Level Blog and hard copies are located near the Cafeteria Display. Please feel free to come and take one.
If you have any experience or expertise with the content of these units of inquiry, we would love to hear from you! Please contact our PYP Coordinator (email@example.com) or your daughter's homeroom teacher.
