Last Friday, every MYP teacher in the Secondary, Teaching Assistants, and some Elementary teachers, joined together to learn more about the IB Middle Years Program. We were engaged in furthering our own learning about MYP, how to create meaningful unit plans, and how to teach by using inquiry. We worked happily until 8:00pm.
Twenty-six of us showed up again Saturday morning to spend the day digging deeper into many different aspects of the MYP including ATL’s, global contexts, key and related concepts, inquiry questions, and the personal project. We want our students to be lifelong learners and they get to learn this trait from some of the best lifelong learners I know….our teachers.
