CONCEPTS – Powerful ideas that have relevance within the subject areas but also transcend them and that students must explore and re-explore in order to develop a coherent, in-depth understanding. Learn more…
APPROACHES to LEARNING – The capabilities that the students need to demonstrate to succeed in a changing, challenging world, which may be disciplinary or transdisciplinary in nature. Learn more…
ATTITUDES – Dispositions that are expressions of fundamental values, beliefs and feelings about learning, the environment and people. Learn more…
ACTION – Demonstrations of deeper learning in responsible behaviour through action; a manifestation in practice of the other essential elements. In the PYP, every student should have the opportunity to be involved in authentic action either as an individual or in a group of students working collaboratively.
