Grade 6 is a key transitional year when students leave primary school and enter middle school. Students are engaged in 8 subjects and are moving from class to class taught by subject specialists. Self-management, an Approaches to Learning Skill (ATL), is essential as it helps students organize their time and materials.
English Language and Literature
Students peer assess each other looking for strong verbs, imagery, and themes in each others’ work. This is an ATL Skill: Give and receive meaningful feedback. Students are not only authors but editors and peer coaches.
English Language Acquisition
Co-Teaching allows students to get extra support in classes in order to build up essential English skills. Here the ATL Skill is: Preview and skim texts to build understanding. For students learning another language, this skill helps to reinforce subject-specific vocabulary in order to find meaning more quickly from the text.
MYP Integrated Arts: Drama
Exploring the Arts is much more than a subject. It is about creating and caring; performing and reflecting; it’s about life and being a whole human being.
