IBAA also believes that our teachers need to be exceptional educators who can teach subjects in a cross-curricular manner as is needed for a student’s growth. Therefore, all of our core subject teachers will be trained in cross-curricular education, which is a conscious effort to apply knowledge, principles, and values to more than one academic discipline simultaneously. The disciplines may be related through a central theme, issue, problem, process, topic, or experience. By using real-world scenarios, challenges, and problems, students gain useful knowledge and cross-curricular skills that increase during their designated project periods. This encourages critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork and self-management in the learning environment.
