Our PYP community is in a unique situation. We welcomed in the PYP Enhancements last school year – but for many of us, it was mid-way through the year. Which means this is the first time lots of us are planning our first weeks with the enhancements in mind.
I’m sure many of these considerations were already present in our previous approaches to back to school planning. But now we have a solid, common, intentional framework from which to plan our first day, our first week, and even the days leading up to the first day.
So as we plan our start to the year we need to be sure to ask ourselves and each other:
Are we thinking about The Learners?
Are we thinking about Learning and Teaching?
Are we thinking about the Learning Community?
To help us all in this collective goal I’ve shared some ‘start of the year’ blog posts organized around those 3 categories:
Learning and Teaching
The Learning Community
How are you ensuring the PYP Enhancements are guiding your back to school planning?
What other resources would you add to this list to help strengthen our focus on The Learner, Learning and Teaching and The Learning Community?
