The Mid-Atlantic Association of IB World Schools is pleased to offer a Subject Bootcamp at Robinson Secondary School in Fairfax, VA.
The IBMA Subject Bootcamp is designed for new teachers in current IB schools who will not have a chance to attend IB training due to time or monetary constraints.
This one-day Bootcamp will be led by experienced IB teachers from around the region. Instruction will focus on such topics as an overview of the year, day to day activities, approaches to teaching and subject specific assessment preparation (if applicable).
The Subject Bootcamp would also be appropriate for established IB schools who are considering adding a new subject and would like to hear an overview to see if that subject would best meet their needs. Sessions will be held for a wide range of subjects for all IB Programmes (PYP, MYP, DP, and CP). To see the long list of subjects offered in 2018, click here.
