Abstract

With the spread in popularity of the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years programme (MYP) and the International Baccalaureate (IB) in education systems world – wide, teachers are having to translate the curriculum goals into meaningful syllabus plans. This paper will summarise the challenges that teachers are feeling in effectively supporting the English language and literacy work that needs to be done in delivering this new curriculum. It will draw on a recent consultancy carried out by the HKIEd into the needs of international school teachers in Hong Kong.
