Transcript of The MYP - overview (the Next Chapter)
Approaches to Learning
The MYP extend IB approaches to learning by identifying 10 clusters, often interconnected. When specific ATL skills become an explicit focus for teaching and learning, students can begin to take responsibility for their own development, thus becoming stronger, more self-regulated learners.
The Next Chapter
“Candidates who wish to be stretched should, in my view, take the MYP. The rigour and work ethic it encourages will assist them strongly if they wish to progress to a degree that will require them to really engage with their subject discipline.”
Mike Nicholson, Director of Admissions at Oxford University, 2009
The MYP is a concept driven curriculum.
For each unit of study, in each subject, the teaching and learning will evolve around a key concept, a related concept and a statement of inquiry.
All effective learning is contextual: a specific setting, event or set of circumstances. It is the 'why?' behind the learning.
creativity & innovation
developed by teachers
4 criteria per subject (factual, conceptual, procedural and metacognitive)
aligned with subject-group objectives
"The human individual is equipped to learn and go on learning prodigiously from birth to death, and this is precisely what sets us apart from all other known forms of life."
George Leonard 1992, p.53
