the five areas of interaction
The Five Areas of Interaction

So why are they important?

Approaches to Learning

Human Ingenuity

Environment

Community and Service

Health and social education

The AOIs provide the interdisciplinary approach of the MYP, so that students will learn to see knowledge as an interrelated, coherent whole.

slide3

The five areas of interaction:Are embedded in each subject and developed naturally through themProvide both an organization and an extension of learning within and across the subjects, through the exploration of real-life issuesInspire special activities and interdisciplinary projectsForm part of the framework for student inquiry and take investigative learning further than subject boundariesAre a vehicle for refining conceptual understanding through different perspectivesGuide reflection and lead from knowledge to thoughtful action.

slide6

First up,

Approaches to Learning

Often referred to as ATL

Can be summarized as

“learning how to learn”

how do i learn best how do i know how do i communicate my understanding
How do I learn best? How do I know? How do I communicate my understanding?

Through Approaches to Learning, students are provided with the tools to enable them to take responsibility for their own learning.

developing in individuals an awareness of

how they learn best, of thought processes

and of learning strategies

slide8

ATL is likely to be the one

Area of Interaction

that is part of every MYP Unit Plan

Why?

Because these are examples of Approaches to Learning:

--Organizational skills ( such as note taking) and attitudes

towards work

--Collaborative skills

--Communication

--Information literacy

--Reflection

--Problem-solving and thinking skills

--Subject-specific and interdisciplinary conceptual understanding

slide9

ATL is likely to be the one

Area of Interaction

that is part of every MYP Unit Plan

Why?

Sure looks like 21st Century Skills to me!

Because these are examples of Approaches to Learning:

--Organizational skills ( such as note taking) and attitudes

towards work

--Collaborative skills

--Communication

--Information literacy

--Reflection

--Problem-solving and thinking skills

--Subject-specific and interdisciplinary conceptual understanding

slide10

Approaches to Learning recognizes that true learning is more than the acquisition of knowledge: it involves its thoughtful application, as well as critical thinking and problem solving, both individually and collaboratively.

Aw, so that’s why you won’t give me a multiple choice worksheet everyday!

A Year 3 or 4 History Class learning about the Middle Ages

Which secondary sources will provide appropriate evidence?

How will I present my findings visually and in my oral presentation?

How will I structure my argument? Health and social education, human ingenuity: To what extent does this period deserve the name “Dark Ages”?

slide13

On to…

Community and Service

How do we live in relation to others?

How can I contribute to the community?

How can I help others?

slide14

Community and service starts in the classroom and extends beyond it, requiring students to take an active part in the communities in which they live.

slide15

The mission statement of the IBO stresses that its concern extends beyond intellectual achievement: students should develop a personal value system through which to guide their own lives as thoughtful members of local communities and the larger world.

slide16

Examples of CASTutoring (special needs, new or second lang.students) Managing school sports teamsContributing to student committees and organizations Supporting and developing links between the school and internationalorganizations (Convoy of Hope)Volunteer work in the communitySupporting and developing links with local groups such as orphanages andsenior citizens’ centers

slide17

Truest indicator of successful integration is that no grades need to be awarded for community and service

slide18

Did you get it? As part of our Self-Study report, we need to generate a list of ways that community and serviceis applied in our classrooms and how it is being addressed school-wide. In your group, please share ideas and turn in your list to Lisa Lilley.

slide19

Time for…

Human Ingenuity

human ingenuity why and how do we create what are the consequences
Human IngenuityWhy and how do we create?What are the consequences?

Human Ingenuity stresses the way humans can initiate change, whether for good or bad, and examines the consequences

slide21

Human Ingenuity emphasizes both the importance of researching the developments made by people across space, time and cultures, and the importance of taking time to reflect on these developments.

slide22

In this way, human ingenuitygoes beyond the act of creation alone, leading students to examine, experience and reflect on the creative process.

year 1 interdisciplinary project example math art
Year 1 Interdisciplinary Project Example (Math / Art)

In math, students study geometry including the conceptsof symmetry, isometries (rotation, translations, reflection), enlargement and limits.

In visual arts classes, they use this knowledge to investigate thework of Escher and his self-posedmathematicalproblems and how he resolved them through the medium of print-making. Students make their own

“Escher print” and identify the

transformation geometries used.geometries used.

sciences topic discoveries
Sciences Topic: Discoveries

History of optics: the discovery and application of simple lenses up to the present day and how their limitations led to the use of other innovations.

The accidental discovery and development of X-rays leading to field applications in medicine within 20 years.

The invention and development of the rocket engine.

The development of enzyme-based low temperature washing powder.

slide25
Do you have it? With another teacher discuss how you could apply the lens of human ingenuity into a unit that you do in your classroom
environment
Environment

Where do we live?

What resources do we have or need?

What are my responsibilities?

slide27

Environment--The importance of the local and global environment--The concepts of sustainable development in a context of increasing environmental threats and related political & socio-economic problems--Coping with the immediate surroundings and various environments within it, that require attention and involve decision making.

slide28

Example from Humanities/Sciences:Hitler’s and Napoleon’s invasions of Russia How does the environment play a role in framing conflict? Study climate of a Russian winter to appreciate that engaging in conflict was often about more than engaging an enemy. Researched & discussed examples of how the environment has been seriously affected by modern weapons technology (the Gulf War, two world wars) and possible effects of new weapons technology.

slide30
Health and Social EducationHow do I think and act?How am I changing?How can I look after myself and others?

Deals with physical, social and emotional

health and intelligenceStudents become better informed about health issues as they consider life options and help develop in them a sense of responsibility for

their own well-being and for their physical

and social environment.

interdisciplinary approach nutrition
Interdisciplinary approach:Nutrition

Physical Education: Students assess their fitness level and relate energy intake (diet) to energy output. The link between diet, exercise and health is reinforced.

Language B: Students are working on foods and

regional cuisines. Students design and prepare a menu that meets general nutritional requirements studied in sciences.

Mathematics:During a fractions and graphing unit, students compile data on how they use their time during the week. This generates discussion on time management and balance of leisure and exercise with a healthy lifestyle, as well as reinforcing ATL.

slide32

Example from Language A: Students reflect on and discuss the emotional impact of language. They discuss personal and group experiences of labelling and bullying. Using movie and television extracts, passages from literature and magazines, they discuss how language can hurt or heal.

slide33

Did you understand? With another teacher discuss how you could apply the lens of Health and Social Education into a unit that you do in your classroom

slide34

Final Thoughts:Don't try to integrate all areas of interaction into all activities. Avoid contrived links which students would soon find artificial. Common planning time will allow for the integration of the areas of interaction to take advantage of ways to reinforce cross-curricular concepts and skills.
