Internal Assessment Teacher Workshop | January 2022

Matt | United States

This is one of the few IB teacher workshops that fulfilled my expectations completely: it was right to the point, with practical advice on how to teach, to help my students and finally, how to evaluate objectively my students' work on the IA.

This workshop wasn’t “EXTRA” for my professional development, I would say it was ESSENTIAL! As someone new to the IB curriculum and to teaching Economics the workshop covered all of the vital concepts I needed to know to survive my first semester of teaching. Brad's workshop contained high quality content that was delivered with passion and a genuine desire to share your knowledge and to present it in a way that becomes useful to teachers even with varying levels of experience. In terms of what we covered and were able I am so glad that I attended Brad Cartwright’s IB Extended Essay Workshop, since it was insightful, informative, and useful. His practical, specific, and encouraging approach really outlined the role of the supervisor and how to guide the student to his/her best abilities. Thank you for showing us “what and how” we can bridge the objectives of the tasks and the mark scheme. I would absolutely recommend this, and all of his other workshops, whether you are a NEW or EXPERIENCED IB teacher. to achieve in only 2 days, the workshop exceeded all of my expectations. The pace was fast but reasonable. Brad answered every question with grace, simplicity, and absolute competence demonstrating his mastery in the field. I loved his energy, passion, and generosity as a facilitator--and it is clear that it is his mission to help us become the best teachers we can be.

I thoroughly recommend Brad’s workshops BOTH for teachers new to IB economics and for those with a few years under their belt. The workshops are well organized and allow for active participation by participants. Even though I have over twenty-years of experience teaching IB Economics, I have come away with fresh ideas of how to organize the material and have implemented many of them already.

The most helpful part of Brad’s workshop was the clarity on the structure of the Internal Assessment and the best type of articles to use to get the most out of the IA commentary. I was very grateful for Brad’s continuous ability to answer my questions throughout to ensure that I fully understood what was being communicated and could challenge some of my current practices. Even though the workshop was full, the session was very interactive and felt almost personalized.

The Launching the School Year workshop was immensely helpful in ramping up for the school year. Having never taught IB DP Economics before, I entered the course not knowing where to begin or what to focus on. I felt like I learned, in four weeks, what it might otherwise take me three years to figure out on my own. The workshop not only laid out a clear architecture for thinking about the course; it also gave me ways to think and talk about and plan for the course that I could put to use with my students immediately.

I highly recommend Brad’s Extended Essay Teacher Workshop, regardless of your level of experience teaching IB Economics. The biggest problem that the majority of us face as IB teachers is the lack of certainty of what and how to guide the EE process. Brad’s style of delivery is clear and well paced, and he provided us with solid strategies and resources to guide our students through the Extended Essay process. Another thing that Brad did was that he assumed zero prior knowledge. I loved this, because as a new IB Economics teacher I have felt a bit overwhelmed in the other workshops I’ve attended. The fact that he explained each area of the Extended Essay process in a non-judgemental way made it easy for everyone to ask any question that they wanted. Finally, it comes clear as day that Brad really cares. IB teachers need support, understanding and guidance, not judgment and ridicule. I got so much peace of mind from this workshop and left feeling empowered to guide my students.

As a new Economics teacher, I was struggling to find the right pace while trying to fill the gap between what IB wanted students to know and what I needed to do as a teacher to facilitate this so my students would be well prepared for their exams. I had many questions - do I teach everything? how do I support my students so they not only know the content, the diagrams, the facts but have those critical skills to be able to analyse and evaluate with conviction? how do I know my IA marking is on par with the IB examiners? Not only I got answers to these questions, during the workshop I've also gained valuable skills and resources to teach confidently. Thanks to Brad, I feel my students are now well supported to not only succeed in their exams but become knowledgeable and critical thinker economists.

To anyone on wondering if they should subscribe, I recommend that your absolutely do so! I was getting high 5s and low 6s on my Econ tests. However, after purchasing the course I managed to raise my grade to consistent 7s. The beauty of this site is that all of videos are organized into easy to follow topics. If there was ever any topic I didn't fully understand in class, I would watch one of Brad's videos and confidently walk into class the next day knowing I was going to ace my next test! Subscribe!

My biggest regret is not suggesting this course to my other IB Economics peers who struggled.

I thought the course was well structured in the sense that it goes from small simple concepts, then building upon each other to reach a well-rounded knowledge about the topic. That is good for comprehension when you learn something new. The thing I most enjoyed and found very useful was that towards the end of the unit, the videos start focusing on possible real-life scenarios which make the viewer think of what to write and add in an evaluation for a test. The best part is that all possible "textbook" answers are given throughout the videos which are great when writing an evaluation. Having all textbook answers focused my thinking on solutions in the evaluation that are not mentioned in the textbook, for example, discussing ethical and or social consequences in addition to the economical ones.
