Interdisciplinary Learning

AIS MYP students have two opportunities to go on field trips during the school year. One is near to the beginning of the year and focuses on team building and outward-bound activities which enable the students to get to know one another and work on their collaboration and communication skills as part of the ATL programme. The other trip, in the spring, is curriculum based and takes the form of an interdisciplinary unit, involving several subjects, centred around a geographical area.

in the MYP these subject areas are often combined and studied together for particular units of work, known as Interdisciplinary Units. Examples of these units could include a study of a particular period across Language A, Humanities and the Arts, eg The Renaissance, or an aspect of science that could be applied in PE, such as how a knowledge of projectiles can improve performance in throwing skills.
