Planning for the Post-Pandemic World: From Polarization to Pluralism
IB Summer Prep is intended for students about to enter Grade 10 or 11 who want to feel more confident approaching their IB studies by experiencing authentic IB learning in an engaging one week program made fully accessible to students both abroad and at home.
Students rotate to different subjects and teachers over the week and experience how IB learning is designed to happen both within and outside of the classroom and offers deep investigation into a range of subjects. Students collaborate in online activities with their peers and refine the use of various technologies for their academic tasks. They learn to write and speak with confidence and develop the thinking and self-management skills most appreciated by universities.
Before officially beginning their IB studies, students will get to know what subjects and activities interest them most. They get to work closely with their teachers, who are all trained to deliver the IB program, in a relaxed, engaging and supportive setting. By the end of the week, students will be proud of what they accomplish with their expanded research and study skills and new insights into the ways of the world.
Students will come to understand what IB learning is all about and how its vision of global citizenship based on knowledgeable, caring and open-minded people helps to make a better world. In practical terms, the IB Summer Prep Program builds important skills and provides a head start into the unique and engaging IB Diploma core elements of Theory of Knowledge (TOK), Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS), and the Extended Essay.
