IB1 student grade level meeting recap

There was a mandatory IB1 student grade level meeting facilitated by academic dean Julia Kinnear and department chairs this past Wednesday that was focused on the extended essay.

These topics were covered:

  • the extended essay process and supports;
  • academic honesty in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme;
  • the fall term, student workload and December exams;
  • and tools to support academic planning and organization.

Students will receive follow-up communication via email. As discussed at the recent IB1 parent information evening, these kinds of group sessions are one element of our intentional approach to supporting students as they navigate the program in general and the extended essay in particular. We appreciate parent efforts in encouraging their sons to attend this and future sessions.
