The Most Important Thing

  1. 1. <ul><li>IB Learner Profile </li></ul><ul><li>‘ The Important Thing...’ </li></ul>Adapted from ‘The Important Book’, Margaret Wise Brown (1949) PD Session- 5 Minute Slot- 16/2/10
  2. 2. Principled The most important thing about being principled is maintaining your true integrity, honesty, fairness, respectfulness. Drop your integrity- lose all. Remember; Humpty Dumpty had a great fall and couldn’t be put together at all. So the most important thing about being principled is to hold on to your honesty, fairness, respectfulness- don’t let it fall.
  3. 3. Balanced The most important thing about a balanced learner is being well rounded. They use their body, brain and feelings in appropriate situations. They don’t emphasise one attribute, but the most important thing is they are a balanced learner.
  4. 4. Communicator The most important thing about a communicator is that they understand and express ideas confidently. They are creative people and have an appreciation for other languages. They also work well with others. But the most important thing about communicators is that they understand and express ideas confidently.
  5. 5. Thinker The most important thing about thinkers is that they think. They think about the good, the bad, the positive and negatives, what’s possible. They love problems and finding solutions. They search, seek and reflect. But the most important thing about thinkers is that they think.
  6. 6. Open-minded The importance of being open-minded is that you listen. You are willing to accept others’ point of view. You are willing to learn from others and accept we are all different. Part of being open is a willingness to change your mind, but the importance of being open-minded is that you listen.
  7. 7. Inquirer The important thing about being an inquirer is that you are curious. You need to know what you know and what you want to find out. And you need to be able to ask searching questions in order to find your answers. But the most important thing about being an inquirer is that you are curious.
  8. 8. Knowledgeable The important thing about being knowledgeable is that you know more. You explore ideas and gather information. You look for things that are important to you and the world. You learn lots. You have a wide bank of knowledge. But the most important thing is that you know more.
  9. 9. Risk-taker The important thing about a risk-taker is they’re not scared to make mistakes. They have outgoing personalities. They are courageous and driven. They are not hindered by failure. But the most important thing about a risk-taker is they’re not scared to make mistakes.
  10. 10. Caring Caring is bright and warm. It comes in all shapes and sizes. Caring is kind and respectful, caring is helpful. But the most important thing about caring is it makes a difference.
  11. 11. Reflective The important thing about being reflective is that you can ask yourself difficult questions and receive honest answers. Being reflective needs learners to look both backwards and forwards in time. It can be done alone, in pairs or in groups. But the most important thing about being reflective is that you can ask yourself difficult questions and receive honest answers.
