A TYPICAL DAY

 

The day starts by welcoming the IB learners to school and liaising with the tutors and Phase Leader for Years 12 and 13 to check which learners need support to make progress in CAS. After this I meet with a parent to discuss their child’s subject options for the Diploma. I then teach my Year 11 class and remind them about the importance of academic integrity and accurate citations. At break I check in with the new teacher librarian to make sure they have all they need to help with the launch of the Extended Essay and can help the learners access the reference materials they will need. 

After break I co teach with a new teacher to help them start the internal assessment with the learners.  I use my non-contact period before lunch to check in with our counsellor to make sure one of our vulnerable learners is accessing the support they need. After this I complete some documentation for the IB review.  At lunchtime I check in with my colleague from Learning Support to make sure the exam accommodations have been processed.  I use the afternoon to plan for upcoming trial examinations and then share the plan with the Learning Area Leaders to get their feedback. After school I join my department to collaborate and standardise the marking of our latest IA. I see the IB have released information on the modifications to the specifications, I read this and summarise it before sending it to colleagues.
