Cas Final

  1. 1. C reativity A ction S ervice <ul><li>Experiential learning </li></ul><ul><li>Through 18 months </li></ul><ul><li>MINIMUM of 150 hours = Diploma requirement </li></ul><ul><li>From beginning of DP1 to March of DP2 </li></ul><ul><li>= the equivalent of half a day per school week (three to four hours per week) </li></ul><ul><li>Ideally, at least two-thirds of your CAS requirement should be fulfilled by the end of DP1 </li></ul><ul><li>Reasonable balance between creativity, action and service. </li></ul><ul><li>Students initiative and planning </li></ul><ul><li>CAS Coordinator = </li></ul><ul><li>only to guide you, not to plan your CAS ! </li></ul>
  2. 2. 8 learning outcomes <ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Through CAS, students will have: </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>increased their awareness of their own strengths and areas for growth </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>They are able to see themselves as individuals with various skills and abilities, </li></ul><ul><li>some more developed than others, and understand that they can make choices </li></ul><ul><li>about how they wish to move forward. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>2. undertaken new challenges </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>A new challenge may be an unfamiliar activity, or an extension to an existing one. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>3. planned and initiated activities </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Planning and initiation will often be in collaboration with others. It can </li></ul><ul><li>be shown in activities that are part of larger projects, for example, </li></ul><ul><li>ongoing school activities in the local community, as well as in small </li></ul><ul><li>student‑led activities. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>4. worked collaboratively with others </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>music in a band, or helping in a kindergarten. At least one project, </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Collaboration can be shown in many different activities, such as team sports, </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>playing involving collaboration and the integration of at least two of creativity, </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>action and service, is required. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  3. 3. 8 learning outcomes <ul><ul><ul><ul><li>5. shown perseverance and commitment in their activities </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>At a minimum, this implies attending regularly and accepting a share of the </li></ul><ul><li>responsibility for dealing with problems that arise in the course of activities. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>6. engaged with issues of global importance </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Students may be involved in international projects but there are many global </li></ul><ul><li>issues that can be acted upon locally or nationally (for example, environmental </li></ul><ul><li>concerns, caring for the elderly). </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>7. considered the ethical implications of their actions </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Ethical decisions arise in almost any CAS activity (for example, on the sports </li></ul><ul><li>field, in musical composition, in relationships with others involved in service </li></ul><ul><li>activities). Evidence of thinking about ethical issues can be shown in various </li></ul><ul><li>ways, including journal entries and conversations with CAS advisers. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>8. developed new skills </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>As with new challenges, new skills may be shown in activities that the student has </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>not previously undertaken, or in increased expertise in an established area. All eight outcomes must be present for a student to complete the CAS requirement. Some may be demonstrated many times, in a variety of activities, but completion requires only that there is some evidence for every outcome. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  4. 4. ACTIVITIES - PROJECTS <ul><li>CAS can be short term activities </li></ul><ul><li>Long-term activities, called projects </li></ul><ul><li>i.e. Soup kitchen = activity </li></ul><ul><li>i.e. International Fashion Show = project </li></ul><ul><li>- CAS Audit on School Run Projects </li></ul>
  5. 5. ACTIVITIES - PROJECTS <ul><li>Individual = Life drawing </li></ul><ul><li>Collaborative = Soran Bushi </li></ul><ul><li>School based </li></ul><ul><li>Outside school </li></ul><ul><li>Supervisor = not by parents, but an adult </li></ul><ul><li>Summer time before being in Grade 11 counts but activity has to be approved by the CAS coordinator </li></ul>
  6. 6. NOT CAS <ul><li>Baby-sitting </li></ul><ul><li>Going for a run with dad </li></ul><ul><li>Taking the dog for a walk </li></ul><ul><li>Selling cakes </li></ul><ul><li>= Fund raising activities , only to help you in reaching your objectives </li></ul>
  7. 7. NOT CAS <ul><li>CAS is not a point-scoring system. The “ethos” of CAS should be considered at all times </li></ul><ul><li>Any class, activity or project which is already part of the Diploma Programme </li></ul><ul><li>Any work or activity where the student is personally rewarded, financially or otherwise </li></ul><ul><li>Simple, tedious, repetitive work, photocopying etc </li></ul><ul><li>Religious worship or family duties </li></ul><ul><li>Any activity which is divisive, this could be political or religious </li></ul><ul><li>Work experience </li></ul>
  8. 8. NOT CAS <ul><li>An activity where there is no responsible adult on site to evaluate your performance </li></ul><ul><li>A passive pursuit, eg. Visits to museums, theatres, exhibitions, concerts or watching sports events </li></ul><ul><li>Working in an old people’s or children’s home when you; </li></ul><ul><li>are just making sandwiches </li></ul><ul><li>have no contact at all with the old people or children </li></ul><ul><li>actually do no service for other people </li></ul><ul><li>fund-raising with no clearly defined end in sight </li></ul><ul><li>Translation work </li></ul><ul><li>have no idea of how the home operates </li></ul><ul><li>Unplanned sport </li></ul>
  9. 9. CAS <ul><li>* A variety of activities = </li></ul><ul><li>NOT COUNTING THE HOURS!!! </li></ul><ul><li>Do not “Clock in and Clock out” </li></ul><ul><li>* Enabling you to have an on-going reflection based on: </li></ul><ul><li>10 IB Learner Profile objectives </li></ul><ul><li>- 8 Learning outcomes </li></ul><ul><li>(see school website) </li></ul>
  10. 10. CAS = not « hours attitude » ! CAS emphasizes more on sharing your talents and working together . The hours are important, but they are not everything. It is the VARIETY of activities. If you are learning the flute and sharing your learning at an assembly or perform for children at a local school you can claim your time you spend sharing this IT HAS AN OBJECTIVE!!!
  11. 11. CAS = not « hours attitude » ! <ul><li>Practicing without focus is not CAS. So practice for individual or team sports must be complemented by other activities </li></ul><ul><li>Competitive matches, organizing tournaments, coaching others will count in addition as it can be counted in another area </li></ul>
  12. 12. CAS = not « hours attitude » ! Suggested guide to a RANGE of activities….. In your two DP years, you should undertake at least two big projects and other minor activities to fulfil the requirement of 150 hours; • you should always recount the hours spent in each activity, regardless of the excess of hours. Even if you spend a large amount of time on the activity. Abrupt withdraw from any activity because it has served its purpose will be considered as major malpractice and therefore face the danger of failing CAS.
  13. 13. To sum up Supervised and planned activities / projects Including your set goals CAS JOURNAL = dates / description of the activities / problems you may have found / solutions you may have solved / review of the objectives / evidence (can be hand written / typed / blog formate…) REFLECTION = using the 10 Learner Profile + 8 learning outcomes + supervisor’s signature
  14. 14. CAS TIPS! <ul><li>Listen to CAS opportunities – Grade Head </li></ul><ul><li>See the CAS notice board on weekly basis </li></ul><ul><li>Send email to CAS Coordinator </li></ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul><ul><li>Make an appointment with CAS Coordinator or IB Coordinator if you have any questions. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Coming up… <ul><li>A blog where you will be able to exchange your CAS ideas, CAS contacts, CAS reflections. </li></ul><ul><li>An International Fashion Show = a good CAS opportunity to work your talents and skills COLLABORATIVELY! </li></ul><ul><li>CAS Check Journals, deadline: April 3 rd </li></ul><ul><li>- GOOD LUCK - </li></ul>
