Through the MYP approaches to learning (ATL) skills framework of categories and clusters, you will inquire into how students develop skills that have relevance across and beyond the curriculum, helping them “learn how to learn”. ATL skills in cognitive, affective and metacognitive domains can be learned and taught (explicitly and implicitly), improved with practice and developed with increasing complexity incrementally. They provide a solid foundation for learning independently and with others. ATL skills help students prepare for, and demonstrate learning through, meaningful assessment. They provide a common language that students and teachers can use to reflect on, and communicate on, the process of learning.
