Capstone Project Title
Rebecca Bauer, PhD
Interaction with quality picture books is a powerful way for young students in the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IB PYP) to develop understanding of the Learner Profile. The Learner Profile is a set of ten attributes that define the “internationally minded learner” and is an integral part of the PYP curriculum framework. The author of this capstone examines existing literature on the history and structure of the IB and PYP, character education, and interactive read-alouds to create a curriculum that focus on attributes of the Learner Profile. Using the PYP curriculum framework and elements of the Fountas and Pinnell interactive read- aloud structure, the interactive read-aloud lessons in this project aim to engage K-2 students in authentic conversations in order to discover the Learner Profile and inspire lifelong learning.
