PYP EXHIBITION – Mentors

Think systemically……5th grade need mentors to be part of the Exhibition system.

Why we have Exhibition

  • For students to engage in an in-depth, collaborative inquiry
  • To provide students an opportunity to demonstrate independence and responsibility for their own learning
  • To provide students with an opportunity to explore multiple perspectives
  • For students to synthesize and apply learning of previous years and to reflect upon their journey through the PYP
  • To provide an authentic process for assessing student understanding
  • To demonstrate how students can take action as a result of their learning
  • To unite the students, teachers, parents and other members of the school community in a collaborative experience that incorporates the essential elements of the PYP
  • To celebrate the transition of learners in the primary to middle/secondary education

Your mentor role

  • The role of the mentor is chiefly to advise and keep students on track
  • There should be regular meetings. For the most part we would like mentor meetings to happen during UOI time, in the grade 5 classrooms.
  • Offer advice on locating resources and using them efficiently
  • Ask questions (i.e. to clarify thinking, to help with processing information, to extend knowledge etc.)
  • Help interpret sophisticated/difficult information
  • Facilitate interviews, telephone calls, any electronic communication
  • Goal setting and time management advice
  • Be supportive and encouraging
  • Celebrate achievements and successes with the students

Please email any of the grade 5 teachers if you are willing to be a part of this exciting journey!
