-Fatima Abdulkazem (Rabat American School)
  • A "lively" Arabic Inquiry approach: this poster highlights our "lively" Arabic approach this year. We are trying to introduce Arabic to our diverse 1st and 2nd grade RAS children. Keeping an Inquiry framework, we want the learner to make real life connections, be invited to something enjoyable, investigate with another learner, then take action individually.We will showcase examples from lively units we created from students' connections and real life experiences.

-Joan Flynn (Leysin American School)
  • Reading & Writing Workshop Considerations for multilingual, mixed-grade middle school students

-Laura Howley (The Kaust School, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia)
  • This poster will show how Learning Diversity and Inclusion is tackled by my English Acquisition department. We are an English medium MYP school with Phases 2-4 English Acquisition classes. Additional in-class support is offered to these students in other subjects. The majority of our EA students are native Arabic speakers.
    Using a matrix of Prior Knowledge, Concepts, Organization and Assessment, lessons are planned accordingly. I will outline how this is done and give an example of a unit of work we are currently working on with students. I will include student work to show the various stages. Our Arabic department ran a similar unit and I will include some of the collaborative materials used which fostered understanding across the dual-languages. 

-Manzella, Lindsay (American International School of Budapest)
  • This poster presentation relates to the sub-theme "Practices and Approaches." The aim would be to show how adding overarching language objectives to a content area unit can help to enrich the unit and elevate the academic language of all students (not just ELLs). The poster would show the unit's language objectives organized around the content objectives, supporting documents for each language objective (student and teacher references), and student work. The unit plan cover page is on this link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1JzcOA9yIROgWtRkGVAhVekYG7x6pdduPRoBPtIwVi2s/edit Each language objective (in red) links to a "Language Target" with additional information and scaffolds about the language target.

-Holly Moshburn (Anglo American School of Moscow)
  • The aim of this poster session is to share how to effectively collect evidence of student learning through anecdotal notes using Google Sheets. 

-Deborah Perrin (British School in the Netherlands Junior Schools)
  • Culture & Identity: Belonging Matters - Using the research by Professor Kathryn Riley to explore how to make sense of the global world, community and school. A project with a student leadership group: JSL International Ambassadors. (Years 5 & 6)
