Approaches to learning

Approaches to learning are used to support students in developing skills that help them “learn how to learn.” They provide a solid foundation for learning independently and with others. ATL skills help students prepare for, and demonstrate learning through, meaningful assessment. They provide a common language that students and teachers can use to reflect on, and articulate on, the process of learning (MYP From Principles to Practice.)
