Approaches to learning can be one of the most overlook components of the PYP. This file will help you to identify which areas the students are confident in and what skills they still need to work in. In addition, this file will help the students to create their own assessment criteria for using the skills. This will allow you to opportunity to increase student agency within your classroom. When delivering this lesson you may choose to teach one or two or the attached pages a whole group instructional opportunity. Then when students gain confident completing these sheets you have the possibility for small group and whole class participation when creating these activities. When i teach these I will normally start at the start of the year with Listening. It is often on of the skills needed straight away in the classroom and allows students to set high expectation for the year. This sheet will be completed together. I often project this on the projector and write over the top of the projection while the class is communicating their ideas. Once the class is competent completing these I will move to small groups where the group talks and discuss the topic, all the while the example is on the board. After the lesson, I will then laminate these and display them in the classroom. I will make up some little student superheros and have the students write their name on the skill that they would like to focus on this week. The students will reflect on their progresses in their weekly reflections. In the past, I have also selected only the skills that would be covered per unit and used only these to dissect with the class. It really depends on your classes understanding of the approaches to learning and their confidence interacting with these skills on a daily basis. The above are just some ideas of how to implement the attached file.
