Key Concepts…

As teacher and learner in the IBO Primary Years Program, I believe that inquiry is a powerful vehicle for learning which challenges students to engage with significant ideas.
The PYP curriculum is driven by key concepts which give the inquiries direction and meaning. The concepts deepen an understanding of the subject areas while providing further opportunities to make connections throughout the learning, from one subject to another, and between disciplinary and transdisciplinary learning. (IBO Making the PYP Happen )

My next few posts will be a series based on these key concepts.  The previous one on perspective was the first, although I hadn’t decided so at the time of writing! It was inspired by my reading about discrimination against Dalit children in India.  The next will be about change.
