Where we are in place and time

This is the Central Idea for our new unit:

Throughout history, people have made contributions which have influenced our present world.

This week the students have watched this video about a remarkable boy from Kenya. We used the video to pick out attributes of our Learner Profile as well as the Attitudes we hope to see from our students. We think he displays most of these qualities:

Learner Profile

Inquirer, Knowledgeable, Thinker, Communicator, Principled, Open-Minded, Caring, Risk Taker, Balanced, Reflective

Attitudes

Appreciation, Commitment, Confidence, Cooperation, Creative, Curiosity, Empathy, Enthusiasm, Independence, Integrity, Respect, Tolerance
