My first use of the Solo Taxonomy when I was an NQT was finding a way to link it to hexagons for an observation – came up with this super cheesy ‘Are you a hex-pert’ activity (kids still laugh whenever I use it!).
I simply use it with visual hexagons to push students to develop their thinking and application of knowledge along the solo taxonomy route.
Pupils complete the task given, using success criteria and this is peer assessed using the hex-pert criteria. They grade the work using a B/S/G hexpert sticker and then improvements are made in red.
