Exciting Research Study on Transition
Preparation for UNIS Hanoi to participate in an international research study on transitions is well underway. All students in Grade 9 and 10 will be invited to complete a 20 min questionnaire on Friday 25 of October as part of a study led by Dr Doug Ota.
This past week, a number of Grade 9 and 10 students and their parents will have also received an invitation to participate in one of two interviews that the research team will be conducting with a randomly sampled students at our school.
Please look for emails and reminders to complete the digital consent form. There will be an information session for parents and students for those students participating in the interviews before our UN Day events.
Grade 9 Student Success – MYP Block
One of the opportunities to provide students with the appropriate care and challenge to empower them to find success in their academic and social-emotional learning is their “MYP block” during I-block on Day 10. In this block, students meet as a grade level with members of the Student Success Team to engage with a learning experience designed to help them learn skills to be successful in high school. The experience is responsive to student and teacher feedback on the current needs of students.
So far, learning has included how to invite teachers to meet for extra help using google calendar, the importance of drinking water to stay hydrated on the class trip, locations of key offices and services in the high school, how to count credits to ensure a pathway to graduation, and other key student skills. Here is the link to our last lesson on Sept 20. For future MYP block lessons, students will develop their research, collaboration, and tech skills through approaches to learning.
