Curriculum Conundrums and the MYP: Attention Grabbing with Ethical Dilemmas
Feedback form is now closed.

This session focuses on using real life ethical dilemmas in interdisciplinary curriculum to generate student focus and support learning outcomes. Emotion drives attention and attention drives learning and ethical dilemmas are a thought-provoking way to stimulate student interest and discussion. Value and belief systems are important concepts; they are an integral part of what makes us human and by using these as a reference point, teachers can support purposeful inquiry based units and understand how these enrich the student interdisciplinary learning experience. All examples will be drawn from our recently published teacher resource books ‘Interdisciplinary Thinking for Schools: Ethical Dilemmas MYP 1, 2 & 3’ and ‘Interdisciplinary Thinking for Schools: Ethical Dilemmas MYP 4 & 5’ (John Catt Educational Ltd, UK).
