Subjects and Strands – “Kids speak.”

A really big part of the “bubble up” curriculum is putting the PYP subjects and strands in student language. This empowers them to know what they are talking about. A group of our students did this and then created the above document. Students need to know what each strand means if they are going to be deciding whether it connects to their learning or not. Very useful when students take control of their learning. They will then have to justify not only the “what” but the “why!” Why does this connect to my learning. Now we have movement which deepens understanding and empowers learning!
