The purpose of IB World Wednesday is to share information about the IB Learners profile and how our students incorporate them into the eight subject groups. Over the first semester, we have shared each IB Learner Profile Trait. Now we will review the eight subject groups. They are:

  1. Language acquisition
  2. Language and literature
  3. Individuals and societies
  4. Sciences
  5. Mathematics
  6. Arts
  7. Physical and health education
  8. Design

Today, we are highlighting Language and Literature. Language and literature courses develop skills in six areas:

  • Listening.
  • Speaking.
  • Reading.
  • Writing.
  • Viewing.
  • Presenting.

Inquiry is at the heart of MYP language learning and aims to support students’ understanding by providing them with opportunities to independently and collaboratively investigate, take action and reflect on their learning. 

IB Profile Trait Inquirers - Students develop their natural curiosity. They acquire the skills necessary to conduct inquiry and research and show independence in learning. They actively enjoy learning and this love of learning will be sustained throughout their lives.
