Much like the Primary Years Program, iInquiry is at the center of teaching and learning in the MYP at IICS. Inquiry “frames the written, taught, and assessed curriculum” your child will experience in our program (Principles to Practice, pg. 50).
An inquiry-driven approach essentially means that units of study are developed by our teachers to build on the students’ prior knowledge and experience with an attempt tothe aim of connecting student learning to the real world. Some examples of this might include problem-based learning, project-based learning, or self-directed units of inquiry. More traditional teaching techniques are combined with newer techniques to provide “learning that is engaging, relevant, challenging, and significant.” (Principles to Practice, pg. 11).
