Statements of inquiry

All MYP units have a ‘statement of inquiry’ or SOI. This is a meaningful statement that expresses the big idea of the unit, guides student inquiry, and also prompts connections outside of the unit. It is constructed by combining the key and related concepts with the global context.

Watch this video to learn more about constructing strong SOIs for your units.

Crafting SOIs with teaching teams helps to design more purposeful and intentional learning experiences for students across the board. Use the starter pack below during collaborative meetings, or at teacher orientations, to bolster inquiry-driven teaching and learning processes at your school!
