Discussion for MYP Design Cycle Introduction Lesson
Christina Snyder (Teacher (K-12))
Any teacher looking for an effective way to teach students how to actually achieve the end goal of creating a final project of any sort will find this interesting. Often teachers assign a project, with little input as to how to go about creating whatever the end product is supposed to be. Students are just asked to 'do it.' The MYP design asks students to engage in the critical thinking of the steps of project completion: investigate, design/plan, create, evaluate. Students are given a skill that they can use in any classroom, any subject area, and really any area of their lives that requires careful thought and planning. Great resource.

I like how this lessons allows the students to explore and define new terms for themselves. I think this makes any vocabulary learning more authentic. the use of Google-Docs for students to record their findings is an excellent use of technology in this lesson. This lesson also leads to wonderful cross-curricular relationships. This lesson will help to make sure that all students are successful in planning any kind of project, and students can often become overwhelmed with the amount of work in a project. Excellent resource!
