Introduction to the MYP Monday September 26, 2016 6:30pm 7:00pm GWA Auditorium Objectives: To understand how your child learns in each subject area at GWA: IB Learner Profile, Approaches to Teaching and Learning, and Criterion-Based assessment. To understand our academic goals at GWA in regards to the Middle Years Programme (MYP). What is the IB? The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. The organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become

active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right. The IB Learner Profile IB MYP Programme Model The MYP Journey Grades 6-10 (Years 1-5) Approaches to Learning (ATL) Learning how to learn, explicit teaching and learning in the development 21st Century Skills Approach to Teaching (Global Contexts, Concepts) Teaching and learning to ensure meaningful life long learning Understanding how to apply and transfer knowledge in real-world situations

Teaching beyond facts to develop creative and critical thinkers Service as Action (Elena Aldridge) Grade 10 Personal Project (Melodee Peters) Teaching and Learning in the IB Inquiry uses knowledge and experience along with student curiosity to find what is relevant, engaging, challenging and significant. Developing purpose through questioning. Action represents the IBs commitment to teaching and learning through real-life experiences. Learning experiences develop understandings, which are reflected through purposeful and meaningful formative and summative assessments. Reflection is required to identify the impact of learning. It supports students in becoming critical thinkers, and creative problem solvers, in a way to support their own self-management and development of the ATL skills. Assessment is Formative and Summative Criterion-related Different criteria for each subject IB assessment criteria are used to assess both formative and

summative work and must address all objectives within the criterion. Level of Achievement (not a percentage) Ongoing and process-oriented (part of the learning experience). Subject Groups Criterion A B C D Language and Literature (Language A: English and Arabic)

A communication/teaching tool with students Used in every subject, for summative and formative tasks Contain criteria, descriptors, levels of achievement Assessment tasks should: Assess the application of knowledge, rather than the recall of facts. Be varied in the type of activities in order to address different objectives Inform student, parent and teacher about the students achievement against the criteria Allow students the opportunity to reach the highest band of the rubric Support the students in demonstrating his/her abilities and achievement level MYP GRADES 1-7 Grade 1 2

Develop the IB Learner Profile attributes: Balanced, Open-minded, Reflective, Inquirers, Thinkers, Knowledgeable, Communicators, Principled, Caring, Risk-takers.
