International Baccalaureate (IB) – Prep Inquiry One: Who We Are….

Who We Are

An exploration of the nature of the self; of our beliefs and values; of personal, physical, mental, social and spiritual health; of our families, friends, communities and cultures; of our rights and responsibilities; of what it means to be human.

Central Idea
Personal awareness of self and others helps develop self-identity

Key Concepts

Form: The understanding that everything has a form with recognizable features which can be observed, identified, described and categorized.

Perspective: The understanding that knowledge is not constructed only from the perspective of a particular discipline, individual or group.

Lines of Inquiry
Physical, social and emotional characteristics
Recognizing similarities and differences between myself and others

This week my Preps were asked to draw a self-portrait. They had to think about what they looked like and use grey lead to sketch themselves. Their self-potraits are beautiful. At the end of our inquiry my Preps will be asked to complete another self-portrait to display their new understanding of form.

Cheers Nina
