Lessons from the Field: A Trip to C2TV Sports

Today we had the privilege of traveling to the C2TV Sports station. Linked to multiple inquiries, in French and our homeroom, we went with scholarly curiosity and a willingness to learn.

Our goals in venturing beyond our walls included adding to our understanding of the following central ideas and lines of inquiry.


Central Idea: We all belong to the same community of learners.

Lines of Inquiry:

  • The people and members that compose our school community.
  • The roles and responsibilities of members of our school community.
  • Our school system helps us learn.


Central Idea: Unit 1: Individuals approach problems in order to reach solutions.

Lines of Inquiry:

  • Characteristics of problem solvers
  • Problem solving processes
  • Processes applied in various contexts

Central Idea: Unit 2: Movement is a change agent.

Lines of Inquiry:

  • Types of movement
  • Forces that cause movement
  • Changes resulting from movement

In addition to learning how problem solvers at the TV station produce a newscast, we sought to develop a variety of approaches to learning skills.

  1. Self-management Skills
    • I take responsibility for my actions
      • Practice self control with words and actions
  2. Communication Skills
    • I listen to directions and instructions and ask clarifying questions when necessary.
    • I listen to the information and the perspectives of others respectfully
  3. Research Skills
    • I gather information from a variety of resources.


We are grateful to Madame Michele and Madame Eale for coordinating this trip and to Mr. Kibadhi, one of our very own dads, who was gracious enough to allow us this opportunity to explore his facility.
