TEEP: Construct3 Stations with clear instructions (C3B4ME):1. Hexagonal Learning2. SOLO question generator & their thinking square solutions3. LEGO BuildingTight timings:• 8 min per station• 2 minute TEEP review of station• Repeat x 3 Teachit Timer
The Extended Abstract Problem..• Once a student has reached the Extended Abstract SOLO level it is not the end point in their learning• Key is to loop back to the multistructural level where we build up the quantity of our knowledge• Students can then find more potential links (relational) and apply these to create new ideas and concepts (extended abstract)
