Middle Years Program Curriculum
Approaches to learning

  • How do I learn best?

  • How do I know?

  • How do I communicate my understanding?

Through approaches to learning, students are provided with the tools to enable them to take responsibility for their own learning. Central to this is "learning how to learn" and developing in individuals an awareness of how they learn best, of thought processes and of learning strategies.

Approaches to learning also include:

  • organizational skills and attitudes towards work

  • collaborative skills

  • communication

  • information literacy

  • reflection

  • problem-solving and thinking skills

  • subject-specific and interdisciplinary conceptual understanding.

Recognizing and helping students develop the range of their capacities, positive attitudes and effective habits of mind is the shared responsibility of teachers, and is at the core of all curriculum development and delivery.
