Breaking down the IB MYP Community Project

Through continual reflection and collaboration, our College is working towards ways to facilitate the IB MYP Community Project for our Year 8 students. After much reflection this past fortnight, we have come up with changes to how we originally engaged students in the Community Project.

Please feel free to use this as a resource for your school and if you wish to have an editable copy of these Google Slides, we are more than happy to share so you can adjust for your context.

  1. Hi Laura, Thanks for sharing these resources! You’ve broken down the process into manageable chunks for students, and the investigation process supports learning how to inquire deeply. My school is just beginning to explore how service learning will look like in our context, and we would really appreciate if you could share the editable slides. Shall I send you an email address in a Twitter DM?


  2. Thank you for sharing. Would you mind sharing the slides? Do you print a handbook for the students or do all online?
    Thank you!


  3. Hi Laura

    1. Hi Sam, if you just click on the actual Google Slide and go to File > Save a Copy, you can make copies and modify as necessary 🙂 All the best with the Community Project – it is fantastic!
