The ATL Museum Part I
Every morning, throughout this academic year, QAIS advisory program has engaged students in talking about learning.
MYP students have watched inspirational videos and expressed their opinion about them; they have also looked at a variety of Global Issues and have commented upon them; they have engaged in the study of specific skills they have to develop; they have collaborated in summarizing their learning in a variety of ways; and, most importantly, they have become aware of how the learning tools they have around them.
In the last weeks, MYP2 (grade 7 students) have been discussing the following items:
- What is good collaboration?
- What are the elements in good collaboration?
- The importance of accountability in collaboration.
There was no better way to put their discussions and social skills in place than by preparing a museum of their ATL journey for PYP students. Thus, in teams, grade 7 students curated an ATL gallery for PYP students, and they were some very committed ATL museum guides.
The journey does not end there- this was just a rehearsal!
Their job now is to refine their communication skills and the quality of their presentation in order to get PYP 6 started in their PYP exhibition work.
