Being Principled!

As one of the main learner’s profile is “Principled” which means The students act with integrity and honesty, with a strong sense of fairness, justice and respect for the dignity of the individual, groups and communities. They take responsibility for their own actions and the consequences that accompany them.

being principled should be reflected on different situations and in different contexts.

for the importance of being principled and its connection to their lives .

I started my session with asking my students what principled means to you? and we brainstormed and gathered it all on a concept map.

then, they all drew  and write how are they principled in their lives.

after they were done, we watched two videos and they had to stop the video every time they saw an act of ” being principled”. and we wrote it on the white board.


the two videos were really touching! first one about the effect of change by doing simple things , and the second one was about a girl that stood up for someone else.

at the end , they had to write which was in their opinion the best choice of ” act of being principled ” and why.  and then connect integrate it with our theme of healthy choices , and how can you be principled in feeding your body , mind and heart.
