Profile Analysis

Collaborating

PROFILE SIX
I can connect my group with other groups and broader networks for various purposes.

I can step outside of my comfort zone to develop working relationships with unfamiliar groups. I develop and coordinate networking partnerships beyond and in service of the group.  I demonstrate my commitment to the group’s purpose by taking on different roles as needed. I acknowledge different perspectives and seek out and create space for missing or marginalized voices. I summarize key themes to identify commonalities and focus on deepening or transforming our collective thinking and actions. I recognize when wisdom and strategies from others are needed and access these to address complex goals. I help create connections with other groups or networks to further our common goals to further our impact.

Social Awareness and Responsibility

PROFILE FOUR
I can take purposeful action to support others and the environment.

I can build relationships and be a thoughtful and supportive friend. I can identify ways my actions and the actions of others affect my community and the natural environment. I look for ways to make my classroom, school, community, or natural world a better place, and identify small things I can do that could make a difference. I demonstrate respectful and inclusive behaviour in a variety of settings, and I recognize that everyone has something to offer.

Collaborative Found Poems

Students worked in groups to make found poems based on a brochure that provided a guide to recycling.

Profile Analysis

Collaborating

PROFILE FOUR
I can confidently interact and build relationships with other group members to further shared goals.

I can identify and apply roles and strategies to facilitate group work. I draw on past experiences to negotiate and develop group processes.  I am an active listener and speaker — I share my ideas and try to connect them with others’ ideas, I ask clarifying questions and check for understanding when appropriate, and I test my ideas with others and consider their input. I help solve conflicts or challenges as they arise. I recognize how the contributions of myself and others complement each other. I can co-plan and adjust our plan according to our group’s purpose.

Critical and Reflective Thinking

PROFILE FOUR
I can gather and combine new evidence with what I already know to develop reasoned conclusions, judgments, or plans.

I can use what I know and observe to identify problems and ask questions. I explore and engage with materials and sources. I can develop or adapt criteria, check information, assess my thinking, and develop reasoned conclusions, judgments, or plans. I consider more than one way to proceed and make choices based on my reasoning and what I am trying to do. I can assess my own efforts and experiences and identify new goals. I give, receive, and act on constructive feedback.
