I started this website back in ... I think 2012? Two years later, the IB came out with "The Next Chapter," which is a title we can't use anymore because it's 5 years later. I promised that I would do a total overhaul of all these pages once I finished my training and was more knowledgeable. Well, in 2014, I singled-adopted a little boy, survived a house fire, went through immigration problems, and organised multiple surgeries for my son... and didn't go for my training. So that was my excuse for not updating the content pages of this blog.
Now I am at my Category 2 training and I'm ready to get at it!
There's a really cool chart on the whiteboard called a WIQI - WOW, Issues, Questions, and Ideas. In the Questions section, I asked, "Is Di to be assessed as an individual strange through a larger assessment? Or is it supposed to be assessed as an individual task?" I asked this question because our school includes Di within a larger task - how did the students' choice of creative cycle performance demonstrate their transference of knowledge? However, I have a Music Specialist friend who has specific tasks / assignments that are only Di. I'd like some feedback on that.
The workshop leader is cool. He would like the more experienced members of the workshop to lead a mini workshop on Day 3, so I'm hoping to do mine on Di.
