Along with participating in the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, Clubview follows the Georgia Standards of Excellence as required by the Muscogee County School District. The performance standards provide clear expectations for instruction, assessment, and student work. They define the level of work that demonstrates achievement of the standards, enabling a teacher to know “how good is good enough.” The performance standards isolate and identify the skills needed to use the knowledge and skills to problem-solve, reason, communicate, and make connections with other information. They also tell the teacher how to assess the extent to which the student knows the material or can manipulate and apply the information.
On Site Gifted Program
Beginning August 2016, Clubview students who qualify as state identified gifted will be served on Clubview campus following all IB and gifted guidelines. Clubview is blessed with a number of teachers with certification endorsements for gifted. We combine models including resource, cluster and collaborative. Essentially classroom lessons are enhanced and monitored for appropriate gifted services AND the students are pulled out to gather with grade level peers who are also state identified to experience even more! We are excited to have this opportunity to take our IB units to the next level!
The PYP exhibition is an extended collaborative inquiry which is undertaken by students in their final year of PYP. It is suggested that the exhibition replace the unit of inquiry addressing the theme “Sharing the Planet” during the final year. The subject of the exhibition inquiry should be a real –world issue or problem, local or global, which is of sufficient scope and significance to warrant an extended investigation. The class generates relevant and realistic proposals for solutions to the selected issue and therefore the exhibition requires students to apply their learning of previous years.
The exhibition should represent a significant event in the life of a school; encapsulating the essence of the PYP and encouraging younger students to look forward to their final year in the PYP programme. Some of our previous IB exhibitions were: Homelessness Is Not Hopelessness, Calling for a Cure for Cancer, Military Means the World to Me, Books for Belize, Pay It Forward, and H2O for Life.
