An integral part of the PYP is the ability to take action as a result of learning. Students take action in response to their inquiries or because they have the motivation to make a positive difference, bring about positive change or further their learning. Action is student initiated and can be displayed as individual action or collective action. Action can take place at any time, it might be a singular moment or it might be revisited or ongoing. Demonstrations of action include participation, advocacy, social justice, social entrepreneurship, or lifestyle choices.
This year, we have been celebrating the action our students take by documenting these moments on our "Taking Action" Board in the Cafeteria. We have many examples of students taking their learning further by engaging in opportunities of action.
Here are some examples of the action included on our action board:
If you see your child taking action as a result of their learning at school, we would LOVE to hear about it! As action is often taken outside of the learning environment, we often don't know about these opportunities that you as parents are witness to, even a short email telling us about something your child did or said at home as a result of their learning helps us know how the PYP is supporting the development of life long learners that take action!
We would love to post their action on our second Action Board!
Please contact our PYP Coordinator (email@example.com) or your child's homeroom teacher.
