CONCEPTS

What do we want students to understand?

As a PYP school, we commit to concept-driven instruction to:

  • Support inquiry
  • Promote real understanding
  • Teach for depth over quantity
  • Help learners construct meaning through critical thinking
  • Provide context within transdisciplinary units so students can make connections and acquire essential knowledge, life skills, and attitudes
  • Avoid teaching superficial knowledge memorized only to be forgotten

A set of eight concepts were chosen to design a transdisciplinary curriculum. Each key concept includes a broad question prompt.

Form:  What is it like?
Function: How does it work?
Causation:  Why is it like it is?
Connection:  How is to connected to other things?
Perspective:  What are the points of view?
Responsibility:  What is our responsibility?
Reflection:  How do we know?
Change:  How is it changing?
