Kids in general, and IB students in particular, have a natural sense of curiosity and an eagerness to develop new skills. You can help boost this predisposition by further stimulating their longing for inquiry and research. When teaching inquisitive young minds the IB recommends taking a student’s knowledge and individual interests into account. This will help improve the student’s enthusiasm when doing schoolwork, both independently and with classmates.
