IB -MYP Key Concepts
January 19, 2015
is a BIG idea - a principle or conception that is enduring, the significance of which goes beyond aspects such as particular origins, subject matter or place in time (Wiggins and McTighe 1998).
They require students to demonstrate levels of thinking that reach beyond facts or topics.
Concepts have an essential place in the structure of knowledge.
They become principles and generalizations that students can use to understand the world and to succeed in further study and in life beyond school.
Concepts are used to formulate the understandings that students should retain in the future.
Why concept based learning?
What is an IB, MYP
Key concepts are powerful, abstract ideas that have many dimensions and definitions. They have important interconnections and overlapping concerns.
Key concepts engage students in higher-order thinking, helping them to connect facts, and topics with more complex conceptual understanding. Key concepts create "intellectual synergy" (Erikson 2007) and provide points of contact for transferring knowledge and understanding across disciplines and subject groups.
Take a look at the 16
IB Key Concepts
Which of these do you feel you already address in your curriculum?
Which of the key concepts naturally align with the subject(s) you teach?
Choose the key concepts that you feel you already cover in your classes.
On the top of a piece of chart paper, write the subject(s) you teach, and then glue the key concepts to the page (with space in between). Next to the concepts, write a brief description of how you cover each of the concepts.
I teach Israeli culture as a
part of my Hebrew class.
When you are done, hang up your poster.
View other people's work and pay attention to which concepts are repeated. Are any omitted?
Use post-it notes to leave comments on other posters.
Now - take a look at where the IB
places the concepts by subject area:
Were there any Key Concepts that are listed in your subject area that you are NOT already teaching?
Were there any Key Concepts that are NOT listed in your subject area that you ARE teaching?
How is concept based learning
the same as what we are already doing?
How is concept based learning different from what we are already doing?
Welcome to the day!
Today we hope to introduce you to:
IB Key Concepts,
and Global Contexts.
