SOLE with 8MAO

Posed the question ‘Where are percentages used?’, 8MAO students worked in groups to research and present their answer to the question in any way that they wanted to, with the only rule being that everyone had to be involved in the presentation. Some groups presented in the form of a dramatic retelling of where they had personally used percentages, others filmed videos, presented mindmaps and even attempted to write songs about the uses of percentages in the real world.

This lesson used the SOLE (Self-Organised Learning Environment) lesson formula and gave the opportunity for students to enhance their communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity skills (the 4C’s).
