La narrativa in classe: il Reading and Writing Workshop e Culturally responsive pedagogy.

Italian A Curriculum & Assessment in the MYP/DP - Mainly for High School teachers

Monica Stauder and Blu Maniscalco

Deledda International School

Science (Upper School)

How can we keep promoting hand-on experience while ensuring long-term learning?
Three out of four criteria for science assessment are based on experimental and research
skills and only one is based on knowledge and its application. Is this a balanced way to test
students on the effective learning in science? Are written tests a sufficient way to assess in science?
These questions are aimed at the MYP science teachers with the purpose of reflecting on our practice.

The focus of the Job Alike session could be on student wellbeing practices and sharing best practice examples - perhaps zooming in on smaller initiatives and real practice examples so that these could be shared and then used across the whole group.
