3: Student work showcase

Over the last few weeks the Grade 4 class has been preparing for a class Debate! They learned how a debate is conducted, researched a topic, and held their debate yesterday. They invited Mr. Brandon and Ms. Danica to evaluate their performance and give feedback. All the students did a great job!

4: Understanding the PLG learning goals

Our PLG for this month is Communicator. This goal focuses not just on how students share information, but also on keeping a focus on positive communication. The IPC and IMYC Learning Goals challenge students to show their communication skills in the following ways:

  • Being able to make their meaning clear through both verbal and non-verbal tools. This could be demonstrated through conversation but also through gestures, art work, facial expressions, etc.

  • When using any form of social media or online platform, students understand how to use these positively and communicate in a fair and open manner.

  • Students should always consider the impact on others that their chosen method of communication may have.

  • When communicating with others, students meaning should always be clear.

  • To support skills in being International Learners, students can apply different languages depending on the context.
