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 FOURTH of 10 lessons prepared to engage high school students in the IB Learner Profile.
This is the COMMUNICATOR lesson and it is inspired by Amy Cuddy's TED Talk on "Your body language shapes who you are."
SWBAT explain verbal and nonverbal communication.
SWBAT identify and practice power poses.
Students will learn how to practice "power poses" in order to communicate more confidently and powerfully. "Science shows that our bodies can change our minds" [TED Talk – Amy Cuddy].
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.
