The IBMYP is
guided by three fundamental concepts:
Awareness - Students are given increased opportunities to learn about their own
culture and the cultures of people from around the globe. By viewing issues
from multiple points of view, students learn the values of tolerance and
Learning - Learning is made more meaningful for students by focusing on how new
learning connects to students’ own experiences, topics in other disciplines,
and situations in the real world. Instruction and assessment become more
authentic as students realize how the knowledge from each class relates to
their total understanding of the world.
- In order to be successful in the modern world, students must be able to
communicate their ideas in multiple forms. This focus helps students to develop
competency in reading, writing, speaking, listening, design, and technology.
