Recruiting students to the DP: How to (truly) reach all students with "IB For All"
Originally presented on 8 October, 2020
The central mission of an IB education is to nurture curiosity and develop caring and compassionate lifelong learners. Communicating this to parents and students is one of the most important jobs of IB Coordinators and School Leaders. However, it’s not always simple.
In this webinar on recruiting students to the Diploma Programme, IB educator David Quinn, from Harlem Village Academy in New York, aims to inspire with his powerful strategy for including all students in the IB Diploma Programme through messaging that helps young people realize they can overcome their fears and exceed their own expectations.
Specifically, David discusses:
- Why an IB education prepares every student to be successful.
- What messaging and activities inspire students to take on the DP.
- How larger DP cohorts benefit schools and helps to strengthen the school community.
- The myths surrounding what types of students can tackle and thrive in the DP – Because the IB truly is FOR ALL.
