Seminar is another unique piece of IB in Henrico County. The purpose is to instruct students on many program topics such as CAS, Internal and External IB assessments, and the Extended Essay. In addition to the learning the nuts and bolts of the IB Program, educational lessons are built around the IB Learner Profile traits and each month a different trait is highlighted. This is accomplished through films, discussions, essays, guest speakers and other activities. The 11th grade students meet Mondays with the coordinator on a rotating schedule throughout the academic year.
The theme of this year for juniors is “How do I build reliable knowledge for my future?” Through seminar lessons and supported by TOK, students will examine their knowledge, and how it can best prepare them for the next steps of their lives.
