What are the "IB Requirements" of IDU's?
Quotes below are from grey boxes in in the IDU guide. Bullet points are WAB notes.
We are on a journey: focus on learning. Don't worry.
"In each year of the programme, MYP schools are responsible for engaging students in at least one collaboratively planned interdisciplinary unit that involves at least two subject groups." (source)
"When engaging students in formal, collaboratively planned interdisciplinary units, schools must use the interdisciplinary unit planning process." (source)
"In each year of the programme, schools must address all four objectives (every strand) of interdisciplinary learning." (source)
"Schools must report student achievement in interdisciplinary learning to students and parents." (source)
"When engaging students in formal collaboratively planned interdisciplinary units, schools must use the interdisciplinary assessment criteria to inform formative assessment and to determine achievement levels for summative assessment tasks." (source)
