Important Note: MYP Interdisciplinary Unit

Dear Parents,

In IB MYP, one of the key features is its emphasis on the interdisciplinary teaching and learning. This is the process by which students come to understand ways of knowing from two or more disciplines or subject group and integrate them to create new understanding.

In each year of the programme, MYP schools are responsible for engaging students in at least one collaboratively planned interdisciplinary unit that involves at least two subject groups. In Grade-10, students will appear for the onscreen examination of Interdisciplinary Unit which is an essential component and is marked externally.

To meet this requirement, Interdisciplinary unit study will be conducted in Grade 7, Grade 8 & Grade 9 during Term – 2 of this academic session from 26th November – 12th December 2018.

Kindly note that there will be a change in the regular time-table during this period of execution of the Interdisciplinary unit.  Students will attend AS, PS, Arts, PHE, and Language Acquisition slots as per the timetable of a respective section.  Besides this, Grade 9 students will also attend the Optional subject and Additional subject classes as per the timetable during this period. Rest of the slots on a given day will be dedicated to the teaching of the interdisciplinary unit.

Since it is a separate subject for which the students will be getting levels and a Grade that will be a part of their report in the final term, it is important that the students attend the school regularly during the aforementioned dates.
