Three visitors from the IBO Headquarters in Bethesda, Maryland visited ISA on Wednesday, October 29. They attended classes, spoke with students, and met the Administration and a few teachers. Learn more about the visitors and see pictures here.
The International Baccalaureate Organisation trains teachers to plan their own curriculum using world class criterion, standards and approaches to teaching and learning. Over the past two days, our teachers worked with IB Educator and consultant Laura Lane to reflect on units they have written, map their Approaches to Teaching and Learning, and collaboratively plan for the year. They also engaged in a number of professional development activities to build teamwork and collegiality. Featured here are a number of teams discussing and working on the spaghetti marshmallows challenge.(http://marshmallowchallenge.com)
