‘Big Week’ MYP interdisciplinary teaching and learning

Posted: May 24, 2019

Over the course of Monday 27 to Friday 31 May 2019, all MYP Y7-11 students will be engaged in a range of interdisciplinary learning experiences. Over these five days, the regular timetable will be suspended in order to provide the freedom for students to work on a range of projects. In these projects students will bring together the perspectives of various subjects in order to inquire into authentic problems and develop authentic solutions.

The project topics are all based on outcomes of focus group discussions with the ambassadors of each year group as well as extensive teacher planning sessions. All inquiries will lie beneath a broader theme of Hong Kong’s past, future and present. These include HK’s customs and history, distribution of wealth, housing affordability, freedom of expression and ethical decision making. Our decision to suspend the regular timetable also provides us with opportunities to conduct authentic field work, to invite guest speakers and making flexible use of the school’s specialist spaces.

Please note that some of these inquiries will have a field trip component. If your child’s inquiry involves field work, you will have received an eNotice with details and any costs.
