Welcome to the International Curriculum Specialist Series where Fieldwork Education interviews both experts and educators on how best to improve our learning.
In our second episode, Lee Hendricks, Fieldwork Education's International Curriculum Manager for the Middle Years, interviews teacher and IMYC Coordinator Leighanne Small from Hillel Academy in Kingston, Jamaica on some of the great ways to plan, organise, and successfully implement an IMYC Entry Point within a school. The Entry Point is the way to kick off learning in a unit that is engaging, fun, and experiential for students. It is also a way for teachers to collaborate, link concepts among subjects, and promote planning as a group, so that middle school teachers do not find themselves isolated in their practice.
The International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC) has been developed by the International Curriculum Association (ICA). The ICA are the creators of the international curriculums of the IEYC, the IPC, and the IMYC and provide professional development and accreditation.
