The ATL skills are the foundations of IB MYP education. Developing the skills ensures students are learning how to learn so they are adaptable for lifelong learning. These skills of Communication, Research, Self Management, Social and Thinking are applied in a wide variety of situations in MYP Music. Throughout the last couple of years, I have made a conscious effort to be more explicit in my teaching of them to ensure students recognise and reflect on the skills that they are developing. More importantly how they can use those skills in a variety of situations.
With the help of AI and some editing. I have produced this poster on some of the ATL skills and how they are applied in Music. Please feel free to use and share amongst the community under creative commons usage.
