  • A description of scaffolded inquiry-based learning in Language A
  • A description of the role of Language A tutors and tutor support

The workshop will also show how SSSTA courses can provide excellent opportunities to demonstrate IB Approaches to Teaching And Learning (ATL’s) in Language A:

  • Conceptual Understanding
  • Differentiation
  • Formative and Summative Assessment
The participants will then be invited to discuss the Approaches to Learning available to SSSTA students:

  • Research skills
  • Self-management skills
  • Critical thinking skills
  • Social skills
Finally the participants will consider the ethical and financial benefits for a school promoting a well-managed SSSTA Programme.

After attending your workshop, participants will...
  • Understand the benefits to students of providing School Supported Self-taught Language A courses.
  • Understand the wider potential educational, ethical and even financial benefits to a school community.
