IB Approaches to Learning: Communication

One of the approaches to learning of the IB-MYP (International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program) is to ‘use a variety of speaking techniques to communicate with a variety of audiences.” At FASP, our students practice this in many ways in class, during their forums, in the afterschool program, and more. During their debate sessions, our Grade 5 & 6 students have been working in groups to consider all sides of important topics. Then they present their opinions in a debate format in front of their peers and teachers. Learning to express themselves in two languages and to many types of people will help our students to become effective communicators.
