    Hi Janine, I am a new IB PYP music teacher. I have sooooooo many questions. First of all, how do you display/arrange/use the Learner Profiles and attitudes?

      Hi Tamela, and welcome to the PYP club! The Learner Profile is so central to the PYP, it’s important to display it in a highly visible area. That way, you can refer to it all the time; all behaviour issues are brought back to those points. I’ve displayed them with photos, as a lot of teachers do, but I find it’s hard to capture those things clearly in a photo, so I like to put up some sentences demonstrating what each one looks like in action. I’ve actually got a post coming up on the Learner Profile, so be on the lookout for that. I’ve also made posters for the Attitudes, which I use in the same way. If students are off-task, not working hard, etc., I always refer them back to the Profile or Attitudes. Having a common language across the school makes those messages much stronger!
