  1. Hi Mr Hutton
    Really enjoying looking through your website (MYP in particular as I am new to teaching MYP this year) and can’t wait to try out some of your ideas. Can you tell me what “DEAR” stands for at the start of many of the lesson plans? Is it something to do with reading?
    Thanks for
    Kate

    • Hi Kate! It stands for ‘drop everything and read’ – the students have some time in class to read their own independently chosen books. Good luck with the MYP!

  2. Great stuff – I love your work and it has been a great help to me in writing the mYP curriculum for my school this year. Thanks for sharing, for your dedication, hard work and inspiration!

  3. Hello,

    Your ‘Writing Analytically’ resource is so helpful. I hope it is ok that I use it with my students (and attribute the source)?

    With thanks,
    Rachel

    • No problems, Rachel! Actually, I pulled most of that information from Perrine’s Literature (Seventh Edition), plus some other places. I hope it helps!
