ATL's Episode 5: Communication Skills with John Harvey
Show Notes

This episode is the fifth in a series of 8 podcasts we are doing on the IB Approaches to Learning Skills known as the ATL’s that are at the core of all four International Baccalaureate Programmes. This episode features teaching Communication Skills.

My guest is John Harvey, an experienced IB coordinator who has led this work in multiple schools. It is our goal to give you a coherent, sustainable, values aligned strategy to implement ATL Skills in your school.

We are also offering an opportunity for interaction. Below, you will find a link to a Google form where you can ask questions. We will take a few minutes at the end of each episode to answer questions you have about the ATL’s in your context. 

John will continue to respond to your questions after these episodes are produced, so please feel free to pose your questions anytime.

In the podcast, John referred to the Thinking Pathways 'Ladder of Feedback' model for building communication skills. Here is a link to explore more.

He also referred to the Verbal Signposts activity. Here is a link to the pdf document which can also be found in the MYIB site.
