Soaring. Stretching. Shining. Striving.

At TASOK, we believe in excellence, integrity, and inclusivity.

As learners at TASOK, we strive to be:

  • inquirers
  • knowledgeable
  • thinkers
  • communicators
  • principled
  • open-minded
  • caring
  • risk-takers
  • balanced
  • reflective

This past week, we dug into the meaning of some of these terms, and each scholar took time to consider with which descriptor he / she most identifies. As we continue to grow as “fifth grade thinkers,” our desire is to develop each of these qualities in ourselves and to recognize and celebrate them in one another.

Take a peek at the following video clip from “The Rescuers.”

Bernard, Bianca and… the Bottle

Like you, Bernard and Bianca are scholars striving to soar.  Each character has areas in which he or she soars, is stretched, or is striving towards. Using the terms from the TASOK Learner Profile, how would you describe each character?

Complete the form below as you REFLECT on “The Rescuers.”

Periodically, we will take time to REFLECT on ourselves as learners. Click here fora peek at a paper version of our self-reflection form, which might be useful as you think about Bernard, Bianca, and… YOU!

After reviewing the paper version of the reflection form, take a moment to complete the online form below, reflecting on learning habits demonstrated during Week 1.
