POG Presentations of Learning @LJMS
Stacey Jones and the LJMS Drama Department’s Global Classroom Project with students in Ghana is helping students develop Portrait of a Graduate skills.
Portrait of a Graduate is a set of skills all FCPS students must demonstrate to graduate from high school, including creative and critical thinking, collaboration, ethical and global citizenship, goal-direction and resilience, and communication.
LJMS Students prepared a Presentation of Learning showing growth in these various skills.
Why It Mmatters:
- LJMS Students increased their communication & collaboration skills.
- LJMS Students created a digital portfolio proving their growth in these skills.
- LJMS Students used higher critical thinking skills by identifying why these skills are important inside and outside the classroom.
- LJMS Students gave and received feedback on their presentations from peers & teachers in small group settings.
LJMS Drama Department is proud to be one of the first schools in FCPS to incorporate these Portrait of a Graduate Presentations of Learning. Next year, all departments within LJMS will be doing this.
