Starting to think about questions, concepts and strands at the same time is challenging. You have just started to do this. As you think about your conviction and as ideas come to you, you need to start to look at each question through the concepts.
Yesterday we looked at how to write a powerful question and work out the concept that it was most connected to. This focuses the question even more and demands that you are looking at the question in the right way so that you get the right information or answers.
Today we looked at The Flow State. How do you know you are in the Flow State? These are the things that you should be showing and feeling as you are working. Why? Because you chose your conviction and it is important to you. Anything that is important to you is something you should be doing thoughtfully with purpose.
How can we show that things are flowing for us in a way that gets the best out of learning and what we want to achieve in the Exhibition? You should be demonstrating all these things throughout the Exhibition. If you are not, then you are faking it. If you are, then you have chosen wisely and it is a true conviction.
Can you see how we are all pulling all the pieces together now? So far, we have connected knowledge, questions and concepts. We have powered up our questions by using the PYP key concepts.
Stay tuned, there are more pieces we need to add – skills, attitudes and the BIG ONE, Action!
How are you feeling about the Exhibition and where you are going with it?
