Embedding ATL Skills in the MYP Unit Planner
How to craft a robust ATL statement
The key to making any unit planner an authentic one, is ensuring that all of the components in the planner align with one another. ATL skills are more effective when they are linked to content knowledge that is relevant, engaging and transferable. Although ATL skills are not assessed, they are still incorporated into the planner, in order to build on skills that not only support the student within the subject matter but also allow him or her to transfer the skills into other subjects as well.
