Quality Learning Statements

Year-long Unit of Inquiry

Central idea:
Self-development engages people in meaningful action.

Lines of Inquiry:
– Striving for understanding
– Developing passion in ourselves and others
– Creating an inclusive and caring community
– Taking ethical action

Current Grade 1 focus line of inquiry (and teacher question):
Creating an inclusive and caring community
– How can we help to create a caring community?

The Grade 1 students have spent time so far this year reflecting on this question together and individually. Each student has developed personal goals related to what they can each do to contribute to our community well-being. The goals are displayed in the classroom, and represent some of the ways that the Grade 1 students are taking ethical action.
