This is a graphic design unit that explores portions of the MYP Design Cycle. While this unit is organized around MYP principles, you could certainly teach it in a non-IB setting. There are 2 formative assessments, 1 summative assessment, and a number of learning experiences that lead to understanding of many of the assessment criteria and their associated strands. This unit is intended for MYP year 2 or 3. (7th or 8th grade). The unit is intended for students with google classroom and Canva (an easy-to-use graphic design app for ipad or laptop browser.) You could certainly teach the unit without these tools, but it would require some small modifications.
The unit includes:
An MYP unit plan detailing all required fields of a complete MYP unit.
1 summative assessment with a detailed explanation. (Standards B.i., C.ii., C.iii., D.ii.) Students use Canva to create a book cover using ideas and tools created from their formative assessments. This assessment includes a short tutorial for saving finished Canva files.
2 formative assessments and the associated rubrics. (Standards A.i. and B.ii.) These formative assessments are docs meant to be distributed to students for completion - they also serve as process journals.
2 presentations (1 for each formative assessment) with presenter notes.
A document detailing a number of learning experiences and a suggested timeline for implementing them. These learning experiences point toward elements of the formative or the summative assessment.
Since the exact text of IB Assessment criteria, the command terms, and other terminology is copyrighted, I cannot include certain text in the assessments. I have provided simple and easy directions for placing the IB language in the appropriate places.
I use a handful of copyrighted photos in one of my presentations. In place of those images, I have included the links to the so that you can download them yourself and insert them into the slides presentation. It should only take you a few minutes to do this. The pixabay free license pictures remain in the presentation.
