Approaches to Teaching
There are 6 key principles to the approaches to teaching IB courses, the programme should be:
- Based on Inquiry
- Focused on Conceptual understanding
- Developed in local and global Context
- Focused on effective teamwork and Collaboration
- Differentiation to meet the needs of all learners
- Informed by Assessment (formative and summative).
This doesn't mean that every lesson has to incorporate all of these components but the complete 2 year course should.
