OAES IB PYP Learning Attitudes

The IB PYP Attitudes

 

These are twelve positive attitudes toward learning and each other that we explore with students to demonstrate who we are becoming as an IB PYP community. The Attitudes are associated with “international-mindedness,” the embodiment of the attributes included in the IB PYP Learner Profile. Here’s a primer on the IB Attitudes and the months in which they are celebrated here at Ocean Ave School in 2015-16.
