IB Learner Profile Trait of the Month: Open-Minded

Open-Minded: an IB Learner Profile Attribute

Students who are OPEN-MINDED know that all people are different. These students listen to the points of view of others and consider many possibilities before making a decision. They celebrate the differences that make all people unique.


How can parents help at home to develop students who are OPEN-MINDED?

  • Encourage your student to try new things – new foods, new games, and new activities.
  • Expose your student to different festivals, celebrations, and traditions. Be sure to present them in a non-judgmental way.
  • Encourage your student to really listen to others when they speak.
  • Introduce literature about many different cultures into your home library. What did your students learn about other countries or cultures that they didn’t know before?
  • When you observe your student being OPEN-MINDED, reinforce this positive behavior and use the IB Learner Profile terminology.

CONTINUING STRONG

Parents, please encourage your students to do their best to continue to reach their academic goals. Many of our students are involved in extracurricular activities in addition to their academic studies. Let's help them balance the areas in which they juggle each day. Carr students are destined for success!
