The Written Curriculum
In the IBMYP, the written curriculum focuses on four major elements:
- Key and related concepts
- Global contexts
- Approaches to learning (ATL) skills
- Subject overviews
Teaching and learning in the MYP focuses on conceptual understanding in context. The IB prescribed key and related concepts identify the conceptual understandings that students will explore throughout a given unit. The global contexts provide a common language for power contextual learning.
