The students have been busy forming their groups, making decisions about their process journal format and selecting a Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) to help direct their proposal for action. Additionally, selecting a global context will help focus of the action. Students are also writing ideas through developing mind maps and brainstorming with their peers.

The next stage is for students to write their work plan in their group, complete their specific details in order to meet the needs of the project, and the deadline on the 17th February 2020

Interdisciplinary Learning in the MYP

Interdisciplinary learning is not new to Seisen International School. For several years there have been various forms of integration amongst subject disciplines through multi-disciplinary, cross-disciplinary, and integrative approaches.
