This fascinating webinar discussed what makes an excellent IB Library - how you can effectively build your collection over time to best meet the specific needs of the IB curriculum across PYP, MYP and DP programmes. We looked at major milestones in the PYP-MYP-DP continuum and suggested ways in which you can support students and teachers.

Stuart Crouch and Courtney Moore shared expertise and ideas on these IB topics:

  • PP - Personal Project
  • EE - Extended Essay
  • ToK - Theory of Knowledge
  • IDUs - Interdisciplinary Units
  • Units - Units of Work
  • EAL support  - audiobooks
  • PYP - from the perspective of a librarian new to the PYP

The presenters also shared best practices, resources they rely upon to ensure their IB library runs smoothly, and what the library spaces at ISD look like, including pods, teaching areas, and how these spaces are used to best promote the highest level of student achievement.
