IB Attitudes Books and Resources

You don’t have to teach the International Baccalaureate (IB) to appreciate the usefulness of the IB Attitudes and Learner Profile. You can use the suggested books for thought-provoking discussions with children of all ages. Select one of the IB Attitudes Book List topics for a detailed list of books and related resources. You can also explore a list of the IB Learner Profile books. (All descriptions from IBO)

While the IB Attitudes have been absorbed into the Learner Profile I have decided to keep the Attitudes on the website. For those of you who have taught the PYP for a long time, you may still want to check out the related books and resources.

For those of you who don’t know about the IB PYP Attitudes, they are a group of positive attitudes towards people, the environment and learning we want all out students to embrace.

Even though the Attitudes are embedded in the Learner Profile (p.4) we should still be making sure these twelve attitudes are part of our day to day teaching and woven into the students’ daily school life so they become second nature.

You can find more information about this at Ryan Higbea’s blog. He has also created a poster to show how they are embedded in the Learner Profile.
