Course Description:

International Baccalaureate (IB) Preparation Course

This course offers an overview of the IB Program and introduces students to the curriculum requirements and assessment style. It focuses on the Program’s core components: Theory of Knowledge (TOK), the Extended Essay (EE), and Creativity, Action, Service (CAS). Through a combination of classroom sessions, individual practice, and study periods, students develop academic skills to prepare them for individual research, presentation, and academic writing. Students learn and practice in-depth research skills, including how to identify and evaluate various sources. They develop critical thinking skills as they write a short research essay. Practice in presentation and collaboration are also important components of this course. Students learn goal-setting, reflection, time management, and study skills. This course is intended for students who are planning to start the IB Diploma in September 2020 or 2021. The IB Diploma Program is rigorous and requires a strong proficiency in English. Therefore, non-native English speakers will be assessed upon arrival and must place into our highest levels of EAL in order to continue with the course.
