Chapter 2, outlines the importance of having the right mindset for transitioning into the International Baccalaureate and highlights the possibility of the adjustment in your expectations in regards to class sizes and structure, the separation of cohorts, an increased workload, and formative assessments. We also cover your academic and personal goals and objectives, because what gets measured, gets managed.
Chapter 3 discusses Strategies and Learning Styles. We take a look into your strengths and talents, so that you can make informed decisions on subject selection and prerequisite subjects for future study. We introduce you to a 'reverse engineering' approach so that you can put some context into your decision making. In the final module of this chapter, we cover the formative assessments of Year 11 IB, and then discuss smart habits and learning styles that will assist you in reaching your full potential.
Chapter 4, covers the Creativity, Action, and Service, or CAS, component of IB. We provide you with an overview of CAS in general, as well as useful tips in regards to balancing your CAS schedule alongside other commitments.
Chapter 5, is dedicated to parents and guardians. We cover managing the transition to IB, reinforcing the student's independence and healthy study habits. We recommend parents and guardians view this chapter as they also have a vested interest in your IB journey. We talk about how they can provide support in the times ahead.
Our final chapter is the course conclusion, which includes key Take-Aways, Frequently Asked Questions, and a glossary for you to access at any time during the course.
You and your AirTutor can work together to map out Year 11 and make you feel more confident.
