It's Exhibition Time!
What is Exhibition?
Exhibition is the culminating project done by students as they complete the Primary Years Program (elementary grades) through an IB school. The exhibition is a chance for our 5th grade students to demonstrate the knowledge and abilities they have acquired over the years by investigating an interest and acting on what they learn. It is more than a report on a topic. It involves making connections to the IB Learner Profiles, Key Concepts, Skills, and Attitudes that have been taught to the students over the years at Providence Hall.
A key requirement of exhibition is that the students take action. We want them to see themselves as part of a community, nation, and world and understand that they each have a responsibility to act in those spheres. The students will ask themselves, "What action can I take through my interests that can address a problem I see in the world?" The answer to this question will be evident in their exhibition.
Each group of students will need a mentor to meet with on a regular basis, at least once a week in the beginning. A mentor can help the students set and meet goals by asking questions, suggesting resources, helping to interpret difficult information and facilitating interviews or telephone calls. It is critically important that a mentor does not do the work a student can do or answer questions that the students must research. A mentor will only guide students on their journey. As such, a mentor does not need to know anything about the student's chosen topic. A mentor will use his or her experience to encourage students through the process. It is still important that the students maintain ownership of their exhibition, making the decisions and doing the work.
