The command terms in the MYP help students effectively understand and respond to instructions, questions, and problems presented to them. Students, however, often get confused or are unclear about the cognitive demands of the command terms.  

Designed to support students and teachers develop a shared understanding of these ‘action verbs’ across MYP subjects, the command terms posters will help establish expected levels of thinking and performance for different academic tasks. 

Use this resource to:

  • Quickly access the command terms to draw on for your subject
  • Understand the precise terminology you should use consistently to help students know what is expected of them
  • Explore how the command terms align with ATL skills and assessment criteria for your subject
