Learner Profile “The aim of all IB programmes is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.” Standard A4: The school develops and promotes international-mindedness and all attributes of the learner profile across the school community. Standard C16: Teaching and learning develops the IB learner profile attributes. Standard C4 6a: Student learning and development related to all attributes of the IB learner profile are assessed and reported. Profile should be student created. Aim for having a student created profile by November.

STAFF Created Profile • Get in groups of 4(ish) • Read the definition of the learner profile attribute given to your group • Unpack the profile attribute. Write down the ways that we should “live it” as a staff. • What does a teacher who is a thinker look like? What are things he/she does?
What are essential agreements? • Few in number (usually no more than 5) • Written by all group members • Applicable to a broad range of situations • Agreed on by all group members • Positively framed (no can’t, don’t, or shouldn’t)
Essential agreements for looping teams Think about the following questions before sharing with your group: • What helps you work in groups? • What hinders you working in groups? • What do you value in group members? • What do you want working in a group to look like? Sound like? Feel like? Example: I feel like being on time shows respect for group members’ time and commitments outside of the group. So I feel that being on time should be an essential agreement.
