    • The Exhibition
      Conference notes 10th Sept – 12th Sept
    • Visual thinking
      Students write down their thoughts on a piece of post it note individually, then they post it on the paper. The most important idea closest to the middle, with those most unlikely towards the outer. A way this could be used is for a brainstorming session – For Example write down your ideas about what charity organization you would like to support?
    • Making connections to the PYP Key Concepts
      Have the students write the question, once they have written the question, they can write whether is it
      form, function, causation, change, connection, perspective, responsibility, reflection
    • Links to Trans disciplinary themes
      May links to all of the trans disciplinary themes throughout the unit. For example the reason why we might need a charity organization is because of conflict.
    • Exhibition Timetable
      Work backwards from the presentation day.
    • Grouping of students
      Group students according to interest groups. We could get the students to brainstorm different organizations that they could help. Some students

    • Key Components of the PYP
      Students exhibit the attributes of the learner profile
      Students identify, investigate and offer solutions to real-life issues or problems
      Students must be involved in collaborative inquiry
      Students demonstrate action
      The exhibition unites the school community
      Students should explore multiple perspectives
      Students should show independence and responsibility for own learning.
    • Web – Sticky Notes Students can write sticky notes. My first idea is that the students can use it for their brainstorming their interest areas.
      Organizations are set up to help those in need.
    • Parent Help
      Students can go home and brainstorm with their parents.
    • Writing a Central Idea
      Have the students brainstorm ideas
      Write a short sentence that sums it up
      Rank them
      Teachers with the students work them to make the IB appropriate
      What makes a bad Central Idea?
      “Advice given at workshop – Give the Central Idea until you are really confident”
    • Media – Central Idea
      Different forms of media can be used to express or influence people’s beliefs and behaviors
      One idea for connection is that students can identify what different types of media can be used to connect with others. For example facebook is now used for people to connect with others.
    • IBO – Online Curriculum Centre
    • Exhibition ideas
      Put up the theme at the start with a timeline. As we reach each milestone add it to the timeline.
    • Exhibition ideas - Timeline
