The IB MYP is driven by the approaches to learning (ATL) skills. Each of these defined skill categories help students become better learners both inside and outside the classroom. Making the ATL skills come alive requires mindful planning and balancing teaching of content with the teaching of skills. The sessions at this Meet-Up were led by experienced MYP educators to help you better understand how you can help your students develop crucial ATL skills, embed these skills in your subject curricula, and unpack insights for mapping skill progression across the five years of the MYP at your school.
- Learn how to select and align ATLs with subject-specific objectives
- Design your own learning experiences to explicitly teach ATLs
- Explore pathways for curriculum mapping with ATLs
