A big focus this year is integrating the inquiry process to a greater degree with the MYP Design Cycle. It's important for students to understand that the Design Cycle is a cycle of inquiry, not just steps we follow to reach a goal.
Our first step was to look at the cycle and deconstruct it. We looked at each of the steps, and defined and described them in our own language. Students use text, images, charts, keywords, etc., to define and describe the cycle. The final step was to finish with reflection questions about the process.
As we continue our inquiry this year across a number of design units, we will return to this concept map again to help guide us.
