25/10/19 Winner: Tilly L, K01: “ To help mitigate the issue of using too much paper, the teacher started to use PDFs on Edulink for the students’ home learning. It was thought that the teacher did this because of her strong environmental probity. However, when one of the students stated, with hubris, that he simply gone home and printed the sheet, the teacher was unhappy, The student thought that the teacher was being very pedantic, but another student thought that her honourable attempt to save paper might permeate throughout the school. Yet another student, who was quite circumspect, said that PDF were just too risky!”
Highly Commended: Annabel C, Aaliyah E & Nikoline C, K03: “The teacher tried to mitigate the hubris of the aver-achieving student, as his self-absorption was permeating the rest of the class. This required probity; however, the student’s responses were pedantic and it soon became clear he was a circumspect student.
Olivia T, K01: “ The group project turned out to be a disaster due to one student having a strong sense of hubris, even though he did nothing to help, one student being extremely pedantic, while yet another was very circumspect. The last student had a good sense of probity and she tried to mitigate the problems by permeating a positive energy throughout the group.”
