IB Update

From Mrs. Kawahara…

The IB Learner Profile of the Month for September is “Risk Taker.” We are encouraging students to be risk takers in their learning: share their thinking, challenge themselves with a more difficult problem, read a book that they wouldn’t usually choose, etc. We will be discussing, encouraging, and celebrating Risk Taking all month!

A question came up about how we do IB and still teach Common Core. Actually, IB is a great way to meet the Common Core standards. The content that we cover at each grade level is determined by the Common Core state standards. Our work for IB is to align the standards with the IB transdisciplinary themes. The methodology of IB coordinates well with the Common Core standards and 21st Century Learner skills.
