Introducing the IB Programmes: The Middle Years Programme (MYP)
Show Notes

Angela Wilcox, the MYP coordinator at Hopkins North Junior High (and MNIB board member) explains for parents and others what makes the IB Middle Years Programme such a good fit for adolescents in this important age group. The MYP is the bridge between the PYP and more well-known Diploma Programme.
Angela helps us understand how this bridge is built using concept-based teaching and learning. Students in the MYP make their own connections between subjects because they see how learning in each area is connected by the same key concepts.
