Commonalities in IB Practice and the Schoolwide Enrichment Model
Carber, Steven; Reis, Sally
Journal of Research in International Education, v3 n3 p339-359 2004
This article discusses commonalities that exist between two popular educational approaches that provide options for a wide range of student achievement levels, the Schoolwide Enrichment Model and the International Baccalaureate, especially the Primary Years Programme, in classroom practice. Introductions to the International Baccalaureate and Schoolwide Enrichment Model are presented, as is a discussion of commonalities in the two approaches related to the themes of overall school culture, student self-reflection, portfolios, and inquiry-based instruction. Both approaches have similar as well as different goals, and suggested ways to combine the approaches may help to refine the instruction and curriculum provided in both IB and the Schoolwide Enrichment Model.
