Language A and MYP

Language A is defined as the student’s best language. It is typically but not necessarily the language of instruction in the school, and is clearly fundamental to the curriculum as it crosses the boundaries of the traditional disciplines.

  • Language is the basic tool of communication in the sense of enabling a student to understand and be understood, and to establish their own identity. Language is also the avenue by which one gains access to literature and thereby to the cultural treasury of civilization.
  • Language A courses therefore include the study of:
    • the instrumental function of a language where listening, viewing, speaking, reading and writing skills are emphasized
    • literature, which encompasses a variety of periods and genres.
how is the myp curriculum different
How is the MYP Curriculum different?
  • Concept focused learning
  • Common units with common assessments
  • Summative Assessments determine grade
  • We evaluate students based on what they learned, what they have achieved, not what they didn’t do, nor how nice they are or how hard they tried.

Unit Planning for Subject Areas: what do I include?

Areas of Interaction:

Approaches to Learning, Community and Service, Human Ingenuity, Environments, Health and Social Education

Each unit is taught through an area of interaction. One area of interaction is the focus along with Approaches to Learning which will be used in all units

Student Learning Expectations:

Each Area of Interaction has specific Student Learning Expectations

There are specific questions outlined in each of the different subject guides to assist you.

A real life concept

Unit Question not specific to the subject related to the summative assessment

How do I do grading in MYP?
  • MKP Grades:
    • Based on a summative assessment after students have acquired the MYP concepts and skills (already aligned with NYS learning standards and curriculum) through formative assessments
    • Based on 2 criteria at a time, with the exception of Technology
    • Based on what students know, not what they do not know
