This workshop is designed for participants who are keen to start a DP history course, with a focus on strengthening the understanding of assessment requirements. The workshop will focus on elements such as:
- To identify ways to create a challenging programme of international education through the study of history
- To understand the requirements of program design; and to adapt it to the school’s and teacher’s context.
- To develop a deep understanding of the prescribed subjects, world topics and regional options through the external assessment component paper one, two and three.
- To strengthen their understanding of the nature of the internal assessment task and the application of the assessment criteria
- To provide an opportunity for participants to engage in stimulating discussions with other teachers, and to share ideas, resources and experiences.
This workshop is recommended for
Diploma Programme (DP) subject-group teachers new to the DP at established IB World Schools and teachers from interested or candidate schools preparing for authorisation.
This workshop is designed to prepare participants to teach the subject in a manner that supports the IB mission statement and philosophy. The workshop will focus on:
- developing an understanding of the IB mission and philosophy through the programme model as a context for a holistic learning experience
- the subject-specific guide and associated internal and external assessment requirements with practice marking activities of sample student work
- structuring a course that integrates authentic assessment and encourages students to make links across the DP that will enhance their understanding
- using the programme resource centre to access IB publications and network with other IB educators.
