Skill-development

An intrinsic component of the PYP is the development of skills within context. By this we mean that students should be developing useful skills within the subject areas that they are learning about. This is important because it allows children to transfer the learning from one context to another understanding the skills connected to a given discipline.

If they are learning about literature, then they should be learning the skills and procedures involved in the career of writers. Whatever the subject maybe, the students will be exploring the skills involved in a given discipline and practicing those skills within the context of the unit of inquiry. Below is the list of skills determined essential for the well-rounded development of a PYP student:
