In the 3 days of this workshop we will be looking at 3 big questions:
On Day 1 we will be looking at the Why? - this is the philosophy behind the PYP
On Day 2 we will be looking at the What? - this is the theory behind the curriculum. We will be looking at the written and the assessed curriculum.
On Day 3 we will be looking at the How? - this is our practice and how we bring the curriculum alive. We will be looking at planning for inquiry, teaching and learning.
