As I’ve mentioned before, our boys attend an IB, or International Baccalaureate School. IB schools teach using units or themes, in a more hands-on manner, and all revolving around a learner profile. The learner profile includes 10 areas: Inquirer, Communicator, Principled, Risk-taker, Balanced, Knowledgeable, Thinker, Open-minded, Caring and Reflective.IB begins with PY – primary years – which runs grades 1 through 6. William is in his sixth and final year of PY. As the final assignment of PY, the students participate in Exhibition. Exhibition is a chance for each student to choose a subject of interest, and then present it in a way that exhibits their learning and the development of the learner profile attributes.
Yeah, that sounded totally complicated. But William and his classmates had their Exhibition a couple of weeks ago, and they did an outstanding job!
|So grateful to our friend/William’s art teacher, Lizz,
for her assistance and guidance in his art piece.
William focused on Diet and Nutrition. His exhibition included a research report, an interview with our friend Severina, surveys and mathematical analysis, a blog, a PowerPoint presentation, a cookbook, a running/race challenge, a summary of the race (written in Norwegian), and an art piece.
After all of their work is completed, they have an evening to present it to family and friends, share what they have learned, and answer questions.
We are very proud of our not-so-little-guy and the great work he did on his PY6 Exhibition.
|Thanks to friends for coming to support William on Exhibition Night!|
One thought on “Exhibition”
Wow! Sounds like he learned a lot more than he would have in the states! Sounds like an amazing school and student:)
