You guys need to begin researching IA topics. You have some time this semester, but you need to get a topic approved by January.
This semester SL will cover Chapters 2 and 1 in that order. For HL, this means that you will cover Chapters 2, 8, and 1. There are several labs that go along with the content. It is imperative that you stay on top of your coursework. You will use a supplemental IB guide for in-class practice and homework. I will let you know when the guides are ready for checkout.
There is a lot of drawing in this course. You are expected to keep an art kit (pencils, pens, erasers, markers, etc) in your bag so that you can sketch when the lesson calls for it. The IB tests and exams will require you to be able to draw from memory.
Chapter 2 is a very long chapter with nine (9) sections. We will cover three sections at a time and you will be tested after each chunk. It will take about 1.5 weeks to cover each chunk. You will have corresponding Kognity assignments for each chunk. The first Kognity assignment has already been sent to you and is due next Friday.
Okay then, let's get into it. Click HERE for Missions.
