Making SOLO posters ... mass production

After our fabulous SOLO professional development day with Pam Hook, I was commissioned to design and make a poster to use in all the classrooms. It is to be for the staff and students to refer to for the words and meanings of the SOLO taxonomy levels.
I started a design and shared it backwards and forwards, getting feedback and opinions.  It is always an interesting process to work with a client, as their opinions and views don't always match your own!! So suggestions for words were shared and we referred to information on the SOLO Taxonomy website.
Then the design was put into the staff Google Plus community where it was voted on and comments made as feedback. So I went from one client to 40 !!
Alterations were made following the feedback and a really good suggestion came in too.
I made a copy of the design and left the section where the words are blank. Teachers can then fill this part in themselves with subject / topic related words that they are specifically using at the time.

This is the main poster that everyone is getting a copy of......



Here is the blank copy. Teachers can order these from me if they want one to fill in them selves. They will be laminated so that they are re-usable for different topics, as they will wipe clean.
