Unit Of Inquiry:

Students have to sit with their parents and discuss the beliefs attached to their day to day practices/routine. They’ll jot them down on a piece of paper and also try to bring pictures (if possible) depicting their belief.

Highlights of the Cycle 22

Highlights of the Cycle 22

‘Be the change you wish to see in the world’

 -Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

The cycle marked the beginning of new unit of inquiry wherein students explored several learning centers which focused on influencing people through expression of ideas and opinions. These centers were created keeping in mind multiple intelligence of students as the forms of expression included different types of media, namely, video, audio, read aloud of a book, letter writing, photographs etc. The students were asked to answer the following set of questions during this engagement:-

  1. What was the message conveyed through this center?
  2. What was the feeling evoked through the provocation?
  3. What was the medium of expression?
  4. Rate the center on the scale of 1 to 5 (1 being very effective and 5 being ineffective)

The classroom discussion after the tuning in activity was driven by following prompts so as to figure out the essential elements of the new unit:-

1. What is one key learning you take away from these exploration?

2. What common connection did you find across all the centers?

3. Why do you think we explored these centers?

Essential elements for this unit:-

Transdisciplinary theme:- How we express ourselves

Central Idea:- We can influence people through expression of our ideas and opinions.

Lines of inquiry:-

  1. Cause and effects of expressing ideas and opinions (Causation)
  2. How expression helps in communicating our ideas (Function)
  3. Choosing an appropriate form of expression to influence (Reflection)

Related concepts: Impact, Communication, Review

Learner profile: Communicator, Courageous, Responsible

Attitude: Creativity, Commitment, Confidence

Approaches to learning:

Thinking Skills -Synthesis, Analysis

Communication Skills – Speaking, Listening, Writing, Non verbal

Research Skills – Collecting data, Organising data, Interpreting data, Presenting data

The next session was mainly about understanding a powerful strategy, generally used by great leaders and organizations, The Golden Circle. Students watched a TED talk video led by Simon Sinek in which he introduces the audience to a pattern of three concentric circles, innermost being the ‘Why?’, middle one as ‘How?’ and outermost as ‘What?’. The video conveyed the idea of moving from core of the pattern to the outermost circle if you wish to persuade/influence people around you. This has been proved as one of the most effective strategies for influencing people rather than going the other way around. Through this engagement, students inferred that they need to justify the reason of their persuasion to others and why should it concern them too.

Based on their learning from previous session, students researched about a great leader (belonging to any profession) who tried to influence people for a common social cause. Through their research, students answered the following questions which catered to the first line of inquiry ‘Causes and effects of expression of ideas and opinions’ :-

1. Who is the leader you researched about?

2. For what cause was he/she influencing the audience?

3. Why did he/she choose this cause/concern to influence people?

4. What was the form of expression used to convey the message?

5. What was the impact of this action?

Amidst all of these engagements, an arts tuning in session was organized as a part of integration with the essential elements of this transdisciplinary unit. Through this learning experience, students could figure out different ways of expressing their ideas and how to select an appropriate yet effective medium of expression.

By the end of the cycle, students were grouped to work together on an inquiry project which aims at influencing people for a social cause. Throughout this project, they will be making use of Math strand of Data handling so as to collect, record, analyze and present data and Language strand of persuasive writing and public speaking so as to express their opinion by presenting their research findings.
