Reviews

  • "Finally. A book that perfectly matches to all aspects of the MYP. The Key and Related Concepts are authentic and make sense. The assessment correlations to the MYP rubrics are spot-on. It even connects to the Approaches to Learning. The selections are meaningful to the students, connect currently to the international world, and you can be assured they met all IB requirements." - Sharon Muench, IB (PYP/MYP) Curriculum Coordinator, Mackintosh Academy, Colorado
