Global contexts
Teaching and learning in the MYP involves understanding concepts in context. Global contexts provide a common language for powerful contextual learning, identifying specific settings, events or circumstances that provide more concrete perspectives for teaching and learning.

When teachers select a global
context for learning, they are answering the following questions.
• Why are we engaged in this inquiry?
• Why are these concepts important?
• Why is it important for me to understand?
• Why do people care about this topic?
The selected global context will inform the questions that teachers and students ask throughout the unit.
However, many explorations of global contexts are closely related, and in the course of the unit,
questions that relate to other global contexts may also be encouraged, developed and considered.

Statement of Inquiry
1. Student friendly
2. Answers “why?”
3. Allows for meaningful inquiry

Explicit vs. Implicit
“The values of a population and social influences help shape the policies and ultimately the makeup of society.”

Key Concept = Systems.

refers to:
- the idea of interacting components
-the idea of systems providing structure and order
"External and internal influences can impact & even alter pre-existing systems."
