The IB learner profile describes a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond academic success.
They imply a commitment to help all members of the school community learn to respect themselves, others and the world around them.
Each of the IB's programmes is committed to the development of students according to the IB learner profile.
The profile aims to develop learners who are: Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers, Communicators, Principled, Open-minded, Caring, Risk-takers, Balanced, Reflective
We have created a classroom library for each of the Learner Profile traits. Each classroom library is a collection of 10-15 books expertly chosen by K-5 curriculum developers. Each book in the bundle reinforces that specific learner profile trait.
Also, we have included a grid below to show each book’ by Guided Reading, Lexile®, grade level equivalent and accelerated reading levels. This guide will help every teacher assess which books are appropriate for their students.
The Open-Minded Anthologies Classroom Library contains the following 10 books:
|Tales From Old Ireland|
|Barefoot Book of Earth Tales|
|Barefoot Book of Jewish Tales|
|Barefoot Books World Atlas|
|Barefoot Book of Classic Poems|
|Wise Fool Fables of the Islamic World|
