The December 14 IBMA Coordinator meeting will feature a workshop entitled “Making Thinking Visible in the IB Classroom” by several teachers associated with Project Zero: Jim Reese (Washington International School), Sher Anderson Petty (Seneca Valley High School), and Waija Wagle (Washington International School). Here is their description:

“Learning is a consequence of thinking.” -- David Perkins, Co-Founder of Project Zero
In order to scaffold students’ thinking toward deeper learning, we as IB educators must ask ourselves some key questions: How do we best support the development of students’ thinking? What do we mean by deeper learning? How does an emphasis on thinking and understanding fit into IB programs? These questions, and more, will be the focus of this interactive workshop led by three experienced IB educators and Project Zero practitioners. Project Zero (PZ), an educational research group at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education founded in 1967, has collaborated with the IBO for nearly two decades. Today, PZ is an intellectual wellspring, nourishing inquiry into the complexity of human potentials and exploring sustainable ways to support them across multiple and diverse contexts. A number of PZ initiatives have had a significant impact on the educational landscape in the DMV region. We will explore foundational ideas from two projects in particular, Visible Thinking and Teaching for Understanding, with an eye toward translating ideas into effective practice. Come learn practical tools for supporting thinking and deeper learning in your IB classroom!

The meeting will feature a whole-group presentation and then breakouts for DP+CP, MYP, and PYP coordinators.

A Zoom link for the meeting will be sent to all registrants by Dec. 11.
