The role of Language – PYP – Category 3: Virtual

1st April 2022 @ 9:00 am - 3rd April 2022 @ 4:00 pm


Classroom teachers.

All teachers are teachers of language. The Primary Years Programme (PYP) views all languages as equally important. This includes the language of instruction, mother tongue, English as a second language (ESL), English as an additional language (EAL) and host-country languages. This workshop explores the fluid nature of language learning as a continuum, not developmentally tied to an age or stage. You will examine the varying roles of language teachers in advising, supporting or integrating language in the programme of inquiry or in a single subject. You will look at the importance of learning language, learning about language and learning through language. You will be guided in the development of a language policy.

Category 3

Choose category 3 workshops to go more deeply into areas you enjoy and to deepen your understanding and mastery of a particular area or subject.

Note: Teachers and other school leaders who do not teach in an IB World School but wish to sample IB learning may choose to participate in many of our workshops. Please refer to the “Recommended for” information in each workshop description.
