CRITICAL THINKING CORE COMPETENCIES PROFILES
SLIDES are based on Core Competencies in the Redesigned British Columbia Curriculum: “Building Student Success”
NOTE: A complete set of Core Competency Slides and activities (all 6 competency areas: communication, critical thinking, creative thinking, personal awareness and responsibility, positive personal and cultural identity, and social responsibility) with ADAPTED WORDING more SUITABLE FOR GRADES 3 - 6 is available here:
Core Competencies Reflection Strips & Activities including journalling - Adapted for Grades 3 -6
PLEASE NOTE: The Competency "Profiles" in the resource available here are NOT Grade Specific. They represent a whole range of skills from very early communication (Pre-K) through Grade 9 and beyond. Therefore, profile 'one' is NOT directly connected to "Grade 1", and profile 'eight' represents a mature level of communication, NOT a "Grade 8" level. These profiles are intended to be used to help students develop self-awareness and do their own goal setting (with support as necessary), and to move through the different skill levels, each at their own rate.
Some of the language in this set has been adapted slightly by Miss Winning’s Classroom to make it more student-friendly, although students (especially in younger Grades) will still need teacher support to understand the slides. Most of the wording is very much the same as the original wording in the B.C. curriculum documents. Feel free to use these as desired in your classroom.
IDEAS for using this resource:
Present a class of Grade 7, 8 or 9 (or older) students with the entire set and ask them to highlight which competencies they think they have mastered - they should be able to give evidence to support their claims if asked. Then ask them to think about what skills they need to work on next (and how they can work towards building those skills). This could also be done as an enrichment activity for Grade 5/6 students with strong language skills.
OR YOU COULD take screen captures of individual slides for the range of profiles that your students are in (and one or two higher so they know what they are working towards) and use them as a screen saver image for your classroom Computer/Smart Board, Smart TV, etc.
