- Undertaken new challenges.
Goal: To do my best at explaining the IB English A curriculum to other students and parents.
On Thursday February 11th 2016, the IB Year 1 students were asked to participate in an informative presentation night for the 10th Grade parents and students. Our job was to create some presentations and set up stands in which we each explained an IB subject we took to those who came and asked us about it. I chose to present the IB English A course, as it is one of my favourite subjects.
In order to prepare for this event, I decided to work hard and plan a truly informative presentation for the Grade 10 parents. Hence, I created an explanatory Prezi about the course (which can be viewed here), and I also had a meeting with my English A teacher in order to discuss what I should tell parents and students about the course and its benefits.
Before the presentations I felt rather nervous, as I was afraid of not being able to answer the parents’ questions. However, both the them and the students seemed to all have the same inquiries, and it was easy for me to clear up their doubts. I was asked about the differences between English A and English B quite a bit, as well as about how English A was similar to Spanish A. I also shared the Prezi I created with a couple of people who were interested in the course.
All in all, it was a rather pleasant evening, and I am proud of the information I was able to deliver.
