Session 5: The Five Essential Elements

The five essential elements resonate throughout the entire curriculum

In this session we will explore the essential elements using the Jigsaw strategy.

Our Tweets about the 5 Essential Elements:
  • Knowledge is acquired through inquiry driven by conceptual questions.  Skills and attitudes are applied to take action to enhance the lives of others.
  • Intentionally designing authentic learning to drive global inquirers.
  • The essential elements ensure the synthesis in the planning, teaching and learning processes.  The student combines knowledge, concepts, skills, attitudes and action.
  • All essential elements are interdependent ... if you want to teach a concept you need knowledge, skills, attitudes and action.
  • PYP Curriculum transcends beyond time and place, balancing knowledge, skills, concepts, attitudes and action, bringing the world to our known backyard where the whole school community participate as one.
