Continuum workshop offerings

Category 3

Common Sense: IB and the Common Core (DP + MYP + PYP) (SOLD OUT)

Recommended audience: Subject teachers, administrators, heads of school

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) will impact many IB World Schools.  How will your school or district make sense of the CCSS and IB? This workshop examines how we can align the CCSS with IB’s curricular aims and objectives across the IB continuum.  The introduction of the CCSS nation-wide provides an occasion for schools and districts to examine the conceptual understandings and procedural skills development of their curricula, as well as an opportunity to review the best practices of IB. We will examine curriculum alignment and coherence between IB and CCSS in subject groups, analyze how that will impact instructional delivery of our IB programs and discuss leadership and structure for effective implementation. This interactive workshop will allow participants to develop a plan for meaningful integration of the CCSS and IB for their school or district.
