IB Coordinator
Belvedere ES

I am the PYP Coordinator at Belvedere Elementary. The Professional Development Collaborative at Washington International School has provided me with many opportunities to learn about Harvard's Project Zero Thinking Routines and global competencies through the Washington International School Summer Institute for Teachers. As a result I have created a few collections with thinking routines and global competency in mind. #goglobal

Ellen Rogers's collections

 

Where There's Love, There's Life: Celebrating Love

<p>In this collection we are exploring the celebration of love. Marriages happen around the world and have changed over time. As we look we can consider what see, what we think, how the ideas here are connect to us, and how the ideas here are connect to the world and our place in it. (Harvard's Project Zero Thinking Routine: <a href="http://www.pz.harvard.edu/sites/default/files/See%20Think%20Me%20We_2.pdf">See, Think, Me, We</a> from<a href="http://www.pz.harvard.edu/projects/arts-as-civic-commons"> Art as a Civic Commons</a>)</p>

"What Just Is, Isn't Always Just-ice" - Social Justice and Activism

<p>I created this collection for BLM Week 2021. My hope is that students can see the fight for justice and equality continues by viewing these portraits, photos, and images.  Teachers can use several thinking routines to engage with these objects. A fairly new project that has wonderful routines for these objects is<a href="http://www.pz.harvard.edu/projects/arts-as-civic-commons"> Art as Civic Commons</a>. (Click on their resources tab)</p>

Home is Where Your Family is: Family Locations

<p>Places can be important to families for many reasons. In this collection students will explore both locations that are important to others as well as places that their family holds dear. As we look at the locations we will use the See, Wonder, Compare thinking routine to help us compare these locations to our own important places.Then we will also consider airline posters and postcards. To help us consider the perspective of the posters we will use Harvard's Project Zero Thinking Routine <a href="http://www.pz.harvard.edu/resources/think-feel-care">Think, Feel, Care</a>. To encapsulate our thinking around the idea of important locations to our families each student will make a poster or postcard sharing an important location to their family.</p>
