Lower School Principal Message

The new PYP Enhancements call for all PYP (Primary Years Programme) educators to foster and nurture student agency.  Author of Launch and Empower, John Spencer shares the benefits of ownership in learning in this very short video.  How agency will take shape may look different from school to school.  HERE is an interesting model at a PYP school in Vietnam which trialed Personalized Units of Inquiry in order to give students more voice, choice and ownership.
