PYP Curriculum Planning (Beginner)

The following webinar provides a general overview of PYP Curriculum Planning for PYP Teachers using ManageBac.


How can I create a unit of inquiry or stand alone unit?

Units can be created via the Inquiry tab by selecting your year level & class, then click Add Unit. Click here for a step-by-step tutorial on creating unit plans.

Can I create my unit plans in any language?

Yes, any where that you see a text box in ManageBac means that you can type of copy-paste text in any written language.

How do I remove units from previous years?

Units can be exported to PDF in bulk at the end of each term and then archived, all via Inquiry > Whole School Curriculum. Click here for further guidance on accessing archived units from previous years.

Are tasks visible to parents?

If your parents have access to ManageBac, they will be able to see any tasks given in their child's class. Tasks can be hidden by editing the task and saving it as 'draft'.

How much of the PYP Planner is visible to Parents?

If your parents have access to ManageBac, they will be able to see a summary of the unit plan, including the subject focus, timeline, transdisciplinary theme, central idea, lines of inquiry and any additional notes (see screenshot below).


This webinar was originally run on March 22, 2018.
