Much like the Primary Years Program, inquiry 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).
Our inquiry-driven approach means that our teachers develop units of study that build on students prior knowledge and experiences. Prior knowledge becomes the basis for the inquiry questions that transition students through the out units. Examples of this might include problem-based challenges, project based learning, or self-directed units of inquiry. Traditional teaching techniques are blended with current practice and technology to provide “learning that is engaging, relevant, challenging, and significant” (Principles to Practice, pg. 11).
