According to the IB Learner Profile, students should strive to be: inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective. This is the FIRST of 10 lessons prepared to engage high school students in the IB Learner Profile.
This is the INQUIRER lesson and it is designed to help students understand four key points…
1) There is no such thing as a “bad” question BUT there are BETTER questions than others.
2) Asking questions is a way we learn new information so…
3) …the HIGHER the level of question, the more we can learn.
4) Colleges want students to dig deeper, to think critically, and to ask higher level thinking questions.
As an IB school, we try to incorporate the Learner Profile in our school community, culture, and curriculum as often as possible. In addition to monthly lessons and daily "Do Now" activities for each characteristic, at the end of each month, our school also awards IB Learner Profile t-shirts to students who received a "Shout Out" for the characteristic. We also designed color-coded bracelets and stickers (inspired by the Periodic Table of Elements) to go with each characteristic.
