Language acquisition teachers struggle with the conceptual understanding of the MYP units of inquiry. Also in the DP, this is going to be the trend. One of the ATL skills is to develop our students critical and creative thinking. As language teachers we know how to teach the language components to our students, but how can thinking skills be applied in our classroom? How does teaching in the IB program make language teachers different from other programs? In this workshop, we will discuss the relevance of thinking and creative skills to our group of subjects and its links to the IB mission statement.
