Contributing to our community-A focus on Core Competencies
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE INVOLVED?
Staff introduced the story STONE SOUP retold by Heather Forest,
We posed the question before viewing: How might this story represent or show COMMUNITY? WHAT POSITIVE THINGS CAN YOU CONTRIBUTE TO OUR GILMORE COMMUNITY?
This Activity linked to our School-wide language of GRIFS and the SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY CORE COMPETENCY - Contributing to community
The students discussed the story’s connection to COMMUNITY using the following guiding questions:
- What is community?
- How do you know community exists?
- Can community be a feeling?
Following the activity, students were asked to do a self-assessment using our GRIFS matrix:
“I can take responsibility for my part of the Family Teams activity by…”
“I can help other members of my Family Team by…”
