Key Concepts Posters
I've been chatting a lot with my colleague Julie Carl about conceptual understanding. Also been thinking a lot about the importance of transfer, after some points raised by the ever-thought provoking Adrian von Wrede-Jervis. Although the chart shared here has helped me, mainly because I can clearly see which subjects share key concepts, I know it is not the most visually appealing information - therefor, I made my partner make me a poster which shares this information in a better way!
I'll be working on some soon to help with transition between PYP and MYP, and also some to look at concepts shared between all the programmes.
Here is the link to the poster (two versions)

This is very well organised and an appealing display;

Thank you! I've worked on a series of "mats" where you use cut-outs of the Key and related concepts to work through building the conceptual understanding and SOI. Thinking it might help with IDU with more than 2 subjects, too. Didn't think about a poster. :-)

This is so helpful! I’m a visual learner, adjusting to the MYP, so I’m happy to have it as a resource. Thank you.

These are awesome visual markers for MYP. Thanks for sharing.

There is scope to extend these key concepts to other subject groups as well and not just restrict it to the ones mentioned above. e.g. Creativity is a large part of the Arts, Communities and Culture could be extended to I&S. Though this poster is something that could act as a starting point, I fear that something like this, when published, has the downside of leading some educators to believe it to be the ultimate truth, impeding their own thinking of making other possible connections.
