Target Audience Grades:
Constructing a super agent profile is an opportunity for teachers and students to collectively identify the qualities, demeanors, habits, and skill sets of deeper learners. Together, teacher and students will create a set of expected qualities and behaviors for student success that will ultimately conclude with the development of a visual (anchor chart/poster) for student reflection.
Developing this list and visual as a class is critical for student ownership. When terms or expectations are simply handed to students, they lose an opportunity to analyze a concept’s origins and understand its relevance to their life. Having an ideal (super agent) student in mind helps create a common classroom understanding of what each student should strive for. A co- constructed visual also provides a concrete resource for a term or idea that may otherwise be abstract, especially for younger students.
