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 TENTH of 10 lessons prepared to engage high school students in the IB Learner Profile.
This is the REFLECTIVE lesson and it involves a lengthy, individual self-reflection. Before students begin reflecting, it is important to set the mood by establishing a shared understanding of what it means to be reflective and what it means to reflect. The nature of this characteristic and its lesson requires students to know themselves and to look back on the year. The survey also asks students to reflect on their academic performance (we distribute report cards at this time) and to rate themselves on the 10 Learner Characteristics.
Students will be able to reflect on the past year.
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.
