Introducing MYP interdisciplinary teaching and learning

A presentation for those new to MYP interdisciplinary teaching and learning, and those who need an update due to the publication of the new guide: Interdisciplinary teaching and learning in the MYP.
"Abandon the urge to simplify everything, to look for formulas and easy answers, and begin to think multidimensionally, to glory in the mystery and paradoxes of life, not to be dismayed by the multitude of causes and consequences that are inherent in each experience -- to appreciate the fact that life is complex." M. Scott Peck
The presentation below can be used to:
  • introduce MYP interdisciplinary teaching and learning to students, parents and members of staff who are unfamiliar with this key component of the MYP
  • orient experienced MYP educators to changes in the new guide
Coordinators and teachers are welcome to use and adapt the slides, also available here.
The information provided in the rest of this guide is geared towards MYP coordinators and teachers who will be planning and implementing formal interdisciplinary units in their schools.
