Global Issues in the MYP classroom

Published in collaboration with Oxford University Press (OUP), the Global Issues: Project Organizers series is a set of five write-in organizers, one for each year of the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP). Supporting interdisciplinary learning, the Global Issues series is an excellent new resource for MYP students and teachers.

Each full colour project organizer contains six units, each featuring a different theme drawn from the UN Millennium Development Goals and structured around a unit question. Two or three different subjects are brought together in each unit to help structure and facilitate interdisciplinary study. The organizer also provides information on subject interim objectives and the areas of interaction at the start of each unit. Students will gradually populate and personalize their project organizer, creating a valuable record of achievement for the year.

These project organizers will support aspects of the IB philosophy such as:

  • interdisciplinary learning
  • the use of a wide range of resources
  • international-mindedness
  • the IB learner profile and the IB Middle Years Programme areas of interaction, including approaches to learning

Customer review:

By Werner Paetzold, Friday 26 November, 2010-11-29

We recently purchased this set of posters for our school. They are a fascinating collection of unit questions relevant to each subject area. Our teachers found the all of the unit questions to be well-thought out and inspiring.

The Personal Project poster focuses on academic honesty issues.

One hopes that these posters will go on display in IB offices all around the world.

The visuals for the posters are arresting and one imagines designed to create cognitive conflict. Their provocative nature will encourage stimulating debate amongst teachers and students. The combination of visuals and the unit questions are engaging.

Be prepared to be disturbed, provoked and inspired!”

Rating 4 of 5 Stars!

Product development for the PYP and MYP

Sophie Corry, Commissioning Editor for PYP and MYP publications, IB Publishing

I recently visited a number of IB schools and discussed some exciting new product proposals for PYP and MYP publications. We gained a lot of great feedback and I would like to open up the debate to the wider PYP and MYP community by asking you to complete two questionnaires.

In the PYP questionnaire, we are asking questions about a new PYP magazine, fiction titles and student diaries. For the MYP, we want your feedback on a new approaches to learning (ATL) student book/ teacher companion, a student book on inquiry and some teacher resources to help with writing unit planners.

We would love to have your feedback on these new ideas so please complete one or both of the questionnaires via the links below.

Everyone that completes one of these questionnaires will be entered into a draw to win an iPod nano.

Thank you for your support.
