St Paul Lutheran School in Adelaide is a primary school I have been working with for over a year. In fact, this week we celebrated our first anniversary, a great milestone for our professional partnership.
During my professional learning sessions with teachers this week, we continued exploring the SOLO Taxonomy as a language of learning. One area we focused on was how to design a short hexagonal thinking routine.
This great thinking routine gives us some clear indications about learning growth as students connect ideas on hexagons and articulate the links between what they understand.
I created a little planning template to help with the design of this thinking routine, explore the various options and to identify the key ideas or connections we might expect to see.
