Programme of inquiry: A strategy to support school’s self-assessment – PYP – Category 2

26th October 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 28th October 2018 @ 1:00 pm

Recommended for:

PYP coordinators, year-level leaders and area-level leaders. Schools are encouraged to consider sending two people from their staff.

This workshop addresses the PYP requirement that schools have a system for regular review and refinement of the programme of inquiry. You will come away with clear criteria for evaluating a programme of inquiry document and a suggested process to carry out a school-wide selfassessment, which is central to the written curriculum in a school. The programme of inquiry transcends the subject areas in order to explore issues that are relevant, significant, engaging and challenging. You will gain a deeper understanding of the criteria for developing central ideas and lines of inquiry as well as understanding the need for balance and articulation within the programme of inquiry. In addition, you will learn how to give feedback to each other and make changes in the context of a shared and collaborative effort
