4R: Come and look at our learning!

Gandhi

Published Monday, September 19, 2011.
Last updated: Tuesday, September 20, 2011

This week's home learning is to give reasons for why Mahatma Gandhi is admired and respected.  Think about Gandhi's remarkable achievements, attitudes and aspirations and try to link these to the IB learner profile.  The learner profile provides us with attitudes and attributes that we should strive to have to enable us to be successful learners. 

What attributes did Gandhi have that make him a 'learning hero'? Was he a communicator, a risk-taker, an inquirer, a thinker, knowledgeable, caring, principled, balanced, open-minded or reflective?  Can you justify your decisions by giving a reason?

E.g. He was a great communicator because he spoke to thousands of people and his message was clear and powerful. Some boxes are left blank so that you can choose an IB attribute of your choice.

This website will help you to find out more about Gandhi

Challenge:

Can you find 3 additional pieces of information or quotes?  Why do you think Gandhi was called 'Mahatma'?

Add a comment to explain which learning strength or attribute you think Gandhi has and bring in your mind maps on Wednesday 21st September.

 

 

Can you match these statements to the correct attitude?

(a risk-taker, caring, principled, a communicator, a thinker)

 

Gandhi was  ________________  because he made speeches to thousands of people and shared his ideas.

 

He was _____________  because he tried lots of different things to try to solve the problems Indians were having around the world.

Gandhi was a risk taker because he stood up for the entire country.
