IB Learner Profile of the Month
The Learner Profile for the month of April is “Knowledgeable”. Students who are knowledgeable explore concepts and ideas that have local and global significance.  In doing so, they inquire in-depth knowledge and develop understanding across a broad and balanced range of disciplines. 

Activities for Parents:

  • Encourage your child to read books at home that correspond to the topics being covered in school
  • If English is not your primary language, then encouraging books in their mother tongue will help them make more meaningful, lasting connections to what is being taught in their classroom in English.
  • Ask your child about what they are learning in school and engage them in conversations about it.
    -“Why do you think that is an important thing to know?”
    -“Can you think of anything that is happening in the world today that might be similar to that aspect of history?”
  • Encourage your child to become more familiar with current events and to read the newspaper or watch the news when appropriate. (The following website has a list of sites for you, as a parent, to look at to help you make a decision about kid friendly resources:
  • Slideshow
