IB Key Concepts

Key concepts are broad, organizing and powerful ideas that have relevance within the subject group but also transcend it, having relevance in other subject groups.

  • Key concepts facilitate disciplinary and interdisciplinary learning, as well as connections with other subject groups.
  • Key concepts provide a transferable focus for any unit and are a powerful tool of inquiry.
  • Key and related concepts are used to create “big ideas” that the students need to retain for the future. Teachers can consider the unit to be taught and identify which key concept will be used to drive the unit.
  • Key concepts have been selected to serve as unifying and organizing tools for each subject group
    and are provided in the chart below.
