Action in the PYP at BHS
Thank you for all the great examples of Action that you are taking. Action in the PYP is when students are inspired through their learning and their experiences to make a difference to their lives or the community connected to real life issues and opportunities. We would like to celebrate our students taking action outside of school
Please could you email examples to me, email@example.com, and I will share through our newsletter.
There are different types of Action. Last time I gave a description of how ‘participation’ is a form of action, below is a description of how advocacy is a form of action.
Type of Action
Promoting an idea that you feel passionately about e.g. social, environmental or political
Making people aware of an issue you feel passionately about
Sharing ideas with friends, classmates or family
