International Baccalaureate (IB) recently placed an interview with Plymouth Whitemarsh High School (PWHS) English Teacher/IB Coordinator Becky Duffy on the blog on their website.
Mrs. Duffy talked about PWHS's first year with offering the IB Career-Related Programme (CP) and launching the effort during the current COVID-19 outbreak.
"This pandemic has taught all of us to be problem solvers, flexible and innovative, and when implementing the CP at our school for the first time, we've had to channel those skills," said Mrs. Duffy.
Now in its first full year, the IBCP provides PWHS students interested in Business or Design Technology with opportunities to become more globally-aware independent learners. The students benefit from career-related courses, community service opportunities, language development and reflective research — plus college credit. IBCP helps students explore global topics more deeply through ongoing projects that focus on critical thinking, real world experiences and writing.
