|Subject Overview:||This subject introduces participants to the Primary Years Programme (PYP), in the International Baccalaureate, as a philosophy and framework to promote teaching and learning and international-mindedness. It examines the essential elements of the PYP curriculum, transdisciplinary themes and the written, taught and assessment components that underpin the programme. Participants will focus on the pedagogy of inquiry, exploring how this emphasis has shaped the PYP curriculum, as well as developing a theoretical understanding of how students learn in the Primary Years Programme and how the Learner Profile is central to the curriculum. The collaborative planning process of the PYP, necessary PYP standards and the relationship between assessment and learning will also be explored.|
