Thank you for being part of our collective journey towards becoming a K-12 IB school division.
How do I access the
MYP template and
SAVE it properly?
Warm Up:

Identify the Key and Related Concepts in the Statement of Inquiry Examples listed below.

Establishing patterns in the natural world can help in understanding relationships.

Critical readers understand that historical context and authors’ perspectives affect readers’ interpretations of literary texts
and of the concept of truth.

Advances in scientific and technical innovations create opportunities and challenges for cultural and ethnic minorities.

A person’s health is influenced by cultural and conditional changes to diet.

Developments in scientific and technical innovations can manipulate artists’ identity.

Key concepts:
contributed from each subject group.
provide interdisciplinary breadth to the programme.
broad, organizing, powerful ideas that have relevance within and across subjects and disciplines, providing connections that can transfer across time and culture.

Related concepts:

grounded in specific disciplines
explore key concepts in greater detail, providing
depth to the programme.
They emerge from reflection on the nature of specific subjects and disciplines, providing a focus for inquiry into subject-specific content.

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 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?
What is a Global Context?
Teachers construct the statement of inquiry for a unit by
combining a key concept, one or more related
concepts, and a global context

for the unit into a meaningful statement that students can understand. This
statement expresses the relationship between concepts and context; it represents a transferable idea supported by factual content.

concept + strong verb + concept + global context = statement of inquiry
Factual
Conceptual
Debatable
Inquiry questions are drawn from and inspired by the statement of inquiry. Teachers and students develop
these questions to explore the statement of inquiry in greater detail. Students can develop their own
questions in ways that satisfy curiosity and deepen understanding. The strands of subject-specific
objectives can also be helpful in formulating inquiry questions.
