In this webinar, we will explore the benefits of combining international mindedness, interdisciplinary instruction and service learning for multilingual learners from around the world. Participants will come away with a better understanding of these three pillars of an IB education and tangible strategies for implementing them in the classrooms, using examples from Lift, National Geographic Learning’s new Content-based English program for middle school learners. Whether you are new to the IB or a seasoned teacher/administrator, this workshop will leave you with something you can take back to your school!
