1 International Baccalaureate
MYP (Middle Years Programme)

2 IB Mission Statement The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end, the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

3 IB Course Key and Master Schedule
Language and Literature (L/L) Intensive Reading Language Arts 1, 2, and 3 Speech and Debate Journalism/Creative Writing Mathematics (M) Math 1and 2 Pre-Algebra Algebra I Geometry Individuals and Society (I/S) World History Civics American History Science (S) Comprehensive Science I, 2, and 3 Earth and Space Language Acquisition (LA) Spanish Spanish 1 and 2 Physical and Health Education (P/HE) Physical Fitness Design (D) Chess/Critical Thinking Career Education & Entrepreneurship Computer Applications Performance and Visual Arts (P/VA) Art Studio Art Music Chorus/Performing Arts All students in Middle School will have a 7 period day. Every IB MYP student will be required to take a foreign language. Example: Spanish All IB MYP students will have to take a minimum of 50 teaching hours in each of the 8 subject groups.

4 Exciting News!!!! IB Progress Reports
Every MYP student received their first progress report for the 3rd quarter on Wednesday, April 8th. This progress report should have been signed and returned. The goal of the IB progress report is to show the progress that our IB students are making towards the objectives established by the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. The numerical values on the progress reports indicate the achievement level scores received on particular IB summative assessments. All IB summative assessments are scored on pre-determined rubrics that IB has established. These rubrics can be found on our website under the IB tab.

5 Sample IB Progress Report
IB has established four objectives for each subject group (class). A,B,C,D. For example, in Mathematics the four objectives are A-Knowing and Understanding, B-Investigating Patterns, C-Communicating, and D- Applying Mathematics in real-life context. Each objective (A,B,C,D) has its own pre-determined IB rubric.

6 Sample rubric for year 1 (6th grade) Individuals and Societies (History), Criterion/Objective A
Objectives (A,B,C,D) are then broken into different achievement levels with numerical values ranging from 0-8. Each achievement level has specific level descriptors that describe what a students needs to demonstrate to attain a specific achievement level. Achievement level Level descriptor Task-Specific Clarifications The student does not reach a standard described by any of the descriptors below. 1-2 The student: i. recognizes some vocabulary ii. demonstrates basic knowledge and understanding of content and concepts through limited descriptions and/or examples. 3-4 i. uses some vocabulary ii. demonstrates satisfactory knowledge and understanding of content and concepts through simple descriptions, explanations and/or examples. 5-6 i. uses considerable relevant vocabulary, often accurately ii. demonstrates substantial knowledge and understanding of content and concepts through descriptions, explanations and examples. 7–8 i. consistently uses relevant vocabulary accurately ii. demonstrates excellent knowledge and understanding of content and concepts through detailed descriptions, explanations and examples.

7 Example Rubric Achievement level Level descriptor
Task-specific clarification 7–8 The student: consistently uses a wide range of terminology effectively. II. demonstrates detailed knowledge and understanding of content and concepts through thorough descriptions, explanations and examples. You consistently use terminology such as “industrialization”, “enclosure”, “domestic system” and “urbanization” effectively. II. You demonstrate detailed knowledge and understanding of the concept of change in the context of the Industrial Revolution through thorough accurate descriptions about changes in industry and the production system, explanations about how these affected social life and examples of resistance to these changes .

9 Impacts for next year Next year, all MYP students will receive IB progress reports each quarter and will also receive a final report card with an IB grade in each subject group. IB Final Grades are on a 1-7 scale. IB grades do not replace Franklin Academy grades but provide a view of your child’s progress through the lens of IB. IB has established descriptions for each final grade score. Each student must be assessed on each objective at least two times per year (IB requirement). It is important to understand that IB summative assessments are not averaged to determine a final IB grade. Final grades are determined by the growth of the student throughout the course of the school year. For example: if a student is assessed on objective D at the beginning of the year and scores a 2 and then at the end of the year is assessed again on objective D and scores a 4, we do not average them together to determine a final grade. Instead, we look at the overall growth of where the student finished on the objective.

10 IB Final Grades- Individuals and Societies, year 1
By the end of the school year, every IB teacher must assess each criteria/objective for his/her particular subject group at least twice. Final IB course grades are not averaged. They are determined by the professional judgment of teachers based on the entire body of evidence as well as the ongoing learning process. Objective A-Knowing and Understanding Objective B- Investigating Objective C-Communicating Objective D- Thinking Critically Project 2 3 Research Paper 4 5 Test 6 Total Final Points= 20

12 IB Student Ambassadors
IB Student Ambassadors were selected for this honor in recognition of their accomplishments, both academically and socially. These students displayed outstanding character and commitment to academic excellence in our MYP. As an ambassador, these students will play an integral part in the development of our MYP Program here at Franklin Academy. The International Baccalaureate designed the MYP as “a programme that helps students participate actively and responsibly in a changing and increasingly interrelated world.” Our ambassadors voices and involvement are crucial. The goal of the ambassadors is to fervently engage all stakeholders in our continued endeavor to become an IB World School.

13 Other IB Questions? Any other IB related questions can be directed to the IB MYP Coordinator Mr. Christopher Carnaggie Visit our website and IB tabs for any new updates and information. Take the time to talk to your IB student and ask questions about the inquiry and exploration within their classrooms as well as what it means to be an IB student. Our goal is to inform all stakeholders of the implementation of our IB MYP at Franklin Academy. It is important that you continue to educate yourself by attending any information sessions and stay up to date with our website. We welcome all to join us in our journey to become an IB World School in the school year.
