In Literacy in the Digital World, students will engage in new literacy skills using digital tools to explore the IB Design Cycle. Students will research global or local problems, examine existing solutions, design and test their own solution, and present or defend the solution to a broader audience. For example students might research the effect of social media on teens, read a topical novel, and create a website to raise awareness amongst their peers. Minnesota Language Arts and Reading standards will guide instruction as students focus on increasingly complex fiction and informational text, both print and digital. The IB Approaches to Learning skills research, critical thinking, and communication will be taught using strategies such as Cornell note-taking, Socratic seminar, and text annotation.
