In the middle years, collaboration is the main focus of students' social skills. It is a time in their lives where they are learning how to effectively work with others. Collaboration skills fall into many categories, but all of them focus on how to actively listen, form consensus, and work together to improve or achieve a larger goal. While one focus on MYP is helping students develop as independent learners, this does not mean being isolated learners. Rather it is about developing student independence in their other ATL skills to contribute to the larger group and collaborate as a community member.
Looking at the collaboration skills, they can be broken down into the categories listed below. Click on the category to find resources to use when helping students develop these skills.
