Session 1: PYP Curriculum Planning - Part 1

{Experience Level: Beginner-Intermediate}

The collaborative process supports the transdisciplinary nature of the PYP. This session 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 self-assessment.

In this session, you will explore effective collaborative planning practices. This will be demonstrated through a simulation of the planning process, highlighting ways to engage the whole teaching team in developing units of inquiry and sharing best practices.

Session 2: PYP Curriculum Planning - Part 2
{Experience Level: Beginner-Intermediate}

Participants will consider what makes an effective PYP unit planner. This workshop will assist teachers to develop a deep understanding of how to fill the 9 stage planner. We will be sharing how ManageBac can be used to to make sure that we are providing a structured, virtual learning environment for all our community members where the planning process, the assessment, and the daily communication are all connected. 

Participants are invited to bring a planner they feel shows excellent PYP practice to share with a small group or a planner they would like to get feedback on in terms of how to develop it.  These planners can be on ManageBac or brought on paper to share with a small group.
