The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP) balances the acquisition of knowledge and skills, the development of conceptual understanding, the formation of attitudes and the capacity to take responsible action.
The IB Attributes include caring, balanced, risk-taker, open-minded, communicator, inquirer, knowledgeable, principled, reflective and thinker. These IB-PYP Attitudes include appreciation, commitment, confidence, cooperation, creativity, curiosity, empathy, enthusiasm, independence, integrity, respect, and tolerance.
In the IB, respect is defined as a reverence for themselves, others and the world around them.
“I am considerate of myself, others and the world in which I live...with this attitude I am open-minded. I respect the differences in others.”
Thanks to Mr. Pupkes’ homebase for sharing with our community what they think it means to be respectful:
How can we, as a community, build respect?
- Expect students (and adults) to use manners.
- Don't act rude or tolerate rudeness.
- Give others your time and attention
- Be a courteous conversationalist
- Have a regard for authority
- Treat belongings and surroundings with respect
- Understand that people, with their differences, can also be right
- Have a sense of gratitude
Here are 35 activities to help your child learn about respect.
