STUDENT LEARNING EXPECTATIONS:
SLE PILLARS & SUB SLEs
There are 4 SLE Pillars, each based on one of the four cardinal virtues of Prudence, Justice, Fortitude, and Temperance. Under each 'Pillar' are 3-4 specific Sub SLEs that supports the SLE Pillar and further develops our life and mission at PBVM School.
Each of the cardinal virtues directly forms the human intellect, human will, or the human emotions:
Prudence: Deals most directly with the human intellect and how we use reason to seek what is truly good.
Temperance: Deals most directly with the human emotions and how we respond to pleasurable/delightful things
Fortitude: Deals most directly with the human emotions and how we respond to difficult things (how we use anger)
Justice: Deals most directly with the human will and choosing what is perceived as good.
