2022-2023 ACADEMIC CALENDAR

APRIL IB ATTRIBUTE OF THE MONTH-KNOWLEDGABLE

Big picture

The IB Learner profile aims to develop students who are knowledgeable. Students who are knowledgeable explore concepts, ideas and issues that have local and global significance. In doing so, they acquire in-depth knowledge and develop understanding across a broad and balanced range of disciplines.


IB students are extraordinarily well prepared for the academic requirements of university coursework.

How can parents help to develop students who are knowledgeable at home?

  • Encourage your scholar to be aware of current events by watching the news or reading news articles when appropriate.
  • Explore connections between the area of interest and other topics.
  • When your scholar asks a question, encourage him/her to seek the answer rather than giving the answer.
  • Ask your scholar about what he/she is learning in school and engage in conversations about it.
  • Foster areas of interest that your scholar displays though books, outings, and activities.


Ask:

  • "Why do you think that is important to know?"
  • "Can you think of anything that's happening today that might be similar to...?"
  • "What does that make you think of?"
  • "Does that remind you of anything else you've learned?"
