Career Discovery – Grade 6

MYP Level 1

MYP Aims and Objectives

The purpose of this course is to provide students a foundation for their academic/educational learning in their career development, exploration, and lifelong learning pursuits.  Students will be expected to gain an understanding of the learning, presentation and application processes as they engage in the personal, academic, career, and educational topical lessons introduced throughout the course.  Student engagement includes self-motivation, independence, general positive attitude, self-direction, being on-task, using time wisely and efficiently, being able to multi-task, and assisting others as needed and appropriate.  All IB units and lessons will be closely aligned with district and state career technical education guidelines and next generation state standards as related to language arts (reading, writing) in order to ensure student readiness for their examination.  Students will be engaged in learning about and applying the IB-MYP Technology Design Cycle to their higher ordered thinking and product/process projects.  The aims of the teaching and study of technology are to encourage and enable students to:

  • Develop an appreciation of the significance of technology for life, society and the environment.
  • Use knowledge, skills and techniques to create products/solutions of appropriate quality.
  • Develop problem-solving, critical- and creative-thinking skills through the application of the design cycle.
  • Develop respect for others’ viewpoints and appreciate alternative solutions to problems.
  • Use and apply ICT effectively as a means to access, process and communicate information, and to solve problems.
