2: Curriculum Focus - Exit Points

This week’s Curriculum Focus will conclude the overview of the structure of an IPC or IMYC unit. Every unit for both IPC and IMYC ends with an Exit Point:

The Exit Point is designed to allow students to create a project that summates and celebrates the learning that has happened over the Theme (IPC) or Big Idea (IMYC) that they have been exploring, bringing closure to that unit. The Exit Point is an opportunity for students to demonstrate their understanding of the subjects studied during the theme and share them with their classmates, teachers and the school community and may provide opportunities for the students to support the local or global community.

In IMYC, students are encouraged to extend their Exit Point concepts by expanding upon their subject based learning, demonstrating how their understanding of the Big Idea has personal meaning to them and connects to the Personal and International goals. In IPC, Exit Points are designed to recap the knowledge gained, skills developed and understanding deepened during their unit.

The Exit Point medium will vary from unit to unit (a presentation, a debate, an exhibition, a play, etc.) and this encourages students to be creative in how they wish to present their learning.

3: Grade 3 Exit Point

Yesterday, Grade 3 held their exit point in the cafeteria for Parents and other classes to visit. Their unit was titled "Inventions that Changed the World."

The Exit Point was an exhibition of students' own inventions based on those they learned about in class. They invented their own boards games, cooking recipes, origami designs, vehicle designs and fashion items.
