International Mindedness and IBMYP Monica Sarang
My Professional Context My Role at Ecole Mondiale World School My Educational Experiences
The context of my paper: ‘An analysis of the extent to which teaching a mathematics unit in the Middle Year Programme through the lens of ‘Areas of Interaction’, (which are now referred to as Global contexts) help in developing internationally minded students.
Structure What is IM? Some definitions Criteria to promote IM IB MYP and IB MYP Math Areas of Interaction (Global Contexts) Teaching and Learning in MYP Year 3 Assessing Challenges Looking for your feedback
Definitions Haden and Thomson (2008) IBO (From Principles to Practice 2010) Fenn and Hapgood (1999) Skelton (2006) Delors (1998)
Criteria for promoting Internationally mindedness in Math Being able To respect and tolerate other cultures, values, races, religions, national beliefs and traditions. To have a global perspective in Mathematics. To be able to understand others way of life and ethnicities. To be able to respect others point of view. To realize ones rights and responsibilities.
To be able to adapt curriculum both across and within each culture. To appreciate leadership that incorporates the values of internationalism. To have the ability to communicate ideas and ideologies of global importance with others. To be involved in problem solving on local community issues, national issues and world issues as well. Criteria to promote Internationally mindedness in Math
EMWS Criteria/Principles Mathematics curriculum should provide students with opportunities: To understand and appreciate global issues To present their own insights on global issues The content should ensure an opportunity for the students to reflect on universal values. To ensure that the students understand the value of their natural environment. To enable the students to understand the interconnectedness and the interdependence of their lives with the people of their country and the world at large All the above will include the attributes of the learner profile listed by the IBO: Reflective, Balanced, Caring, Inquirer, Knowledgeable, Open- minded, Communicator, Thinker, Principled
IBMYP :Middle Year Programme: MYP Programme- Fundamental concepts
IB Mathematics Curriculum Aims and objectives
AOI’s/Global Context Definition List of AOI’s (Areas of Interaction) Examples
Teaching and Learning Year 3 Unit: Speed Distance Time IDU: Geography Global Issue: To understand and appreciate global issues To present their own insights on global issues AOI: Environments and Community and Service Learner profiles: Reflective, Inquirers, knowledgeable
Teaching and Learning – Year 8 Unit – Money Guest Speaker: Deputy Agriculture Secretary – Maharashtra Local Issue: Mass suicide by farmers of Marathwada EMWS Criteria for IM: To enable the students to understand the interconnectedness and the interdependence of their lives with the people of their country and the world at large AOI: Environments, Health and Social Learner Profiles: Caring, Reflective, Thinkers, open- minded, communicators
Assessment Rubric Criterion-referenced assessment Importance of descriptors and achievement level while assessing units
Level of Achievement Descriptor 0 The student fails to reflect on the issue and calculate speed, distance and time 1-2 The student is able to reflect briefly on the issue and is able to calculate the speed only by using the given formula 3-4 The student is able to participate and reflect effectively on the issue and is able to calculate speed and time estimating the distance on his/her own 5-6 The student is able to provide an in-depth reflection and able to perform all the necessary operations to complete the mathematical problems.
Challenges IBO should have workshops on implementation of IM Stability of teachers IBO teachers should share their units especially in subjects like mathematics Lack of common understanding The parent community Should activities on IM be assessed?
Conclusion In Indian Context Stakeholders Be positive as teachers. Importance of Unit planner
