Goal: To create a self-portrait of you, showing how you have been impacted by your learning, within the context of one of 3 Global Contexts.

You will answer the following:

How did your learning this year CHANGE?IMPACT?:

  1. What and how you THINK
  2. What you SAY
  3. What you FEEL
  4. What you SHOW in your actions
  5. What you WANT to CHANGE

What will this look like?

YOU – with a

  2. Speech bubble
  3. A HEART
  4. Something in your hand
  5. Something under your foot



  1. Take a picture of yourself.
  2. Put it in the middle of a page – not too big, not too small.
  3. Now THINK – what were the themes this year, what were the big ideas? The SoIs? The concepts? The Life Lessons? How has what YOU have learned CHANGED how and who you are?
  4. Title the page with one of the following Global Contexts that best fits your reflection:
    1. Identities and Relationships:Who we are: an inquiry into the nature of the self; beliefs and values; personal, physical, mental, social and spiritual health; human relationships including families, friends, communities and cultures; rights and responsibilities; what it means to be human.
    2. Fairness and Development:  Sharing the planet: an inquiry into rights and responsibilities in the struggle to share finite resources with other people and with other living things; communities and the relationships within and between them; access to equal opportunities; peace and conflict resolution.
    3. Personal and Cultural Expression: How we express ourselves: an inquiry into the ways in which we discover and express ideas, feelings, nature, culture, beliefs and values; the ways in which we reflect on, extend and enjoy our creativity; our appreciation of the aesthetic.
  5. Print it out! Hang it up in the class!
