Designed for use with students in years 4 and 5 of the programme, the first two books in this series—Approaches to Learning: A Practical Guide (Student Book) and Approaches to Learning: A Practical Guide (Teacher Book)—focus on the effective development of approaches to learning (ATL) skills that can be used across all MYP subjects and into upper secondary and further education.
