1st Time: "Hey, this doesn't look too different. They've cut out the behaviour mark and have added creative thinking."
2nd Time: "How the heck are we supposed to decide a skills-based curriculum that has incremental skills, raising in difficulty, and yet allows success for students entering each year, even when they have absolutely no skills in music?"
---> In the meantime, I headed off to the OCC to watch their handy videos on how assessment works in MYP Arts. Highly recommended watching! Short, concise, and filled with good examples.
3rd Time: "Wait a minute... I think I like this... it's heavily skills-based, which I love, and yet there's an entire criterion dedicated to creative thinking!"
I haven't done any training yet, but at the moment, "Yes sir, I think I like it!" (10 points for anyone who knows that pop culture!)
