On Tuesday our Grade 11 mentors will be running a session on Thinking, Communication and Social Skills. Here students will see how the are assessed. They will also look at how to IB breaks down these skills, and will pick three from each to reflect on. They will be reflecting on skills they have shown/practiced/improved, and also those that they need to improve!
Here is a link to the presentation -and our ATL Reflection document. Feel free to make a copy of these ('File' then 'Make a Copy') and adapt them for your school!
I think it is super important for the Grade 11s to run these sessions, as they can talk about the ATLs they developed and struggled with, they can always describe how they are using these skills in the DP (especially as they are just starting the EEs). I also think these sessions work better in classrooms with smaller groups, instead of with the whole grade in the auditorium. Our Grade 11s are excellent and I get a lot of great feedback from the advisors who supervise.
