The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a respected qualification gaining increasing currency around the world, and which has been adopted by a wide variety of schools, both public and private. In the UK, growing dissatisfaction with the A-level system has led to an intense debate about alternative qualifications, and in many schools IB courses have been introduced alongside conventional A-level courses. This practical introduction to the IB takes a balanced look at the pros and cons and features a wealth of advice from those actually involved in teaching and implementing it in schools. Providing comparative material on how IB courses differ from A-levels and a subject-by-subject account of best practice in teaching the IB, this book offers a rich source of practical advice for teachers, school leaders or managers involved in teaching or implementing the IB programmes.

You may be wondering why the cover photo of Pearson Baccalaureate's Theory of Knowledge 2nd Edition was chosen. The building featured in the photo is the planetarium at the site of the Bibliotheca Alexandra - The New Library of Alexandria, Egypt. Considered to be the largest and most significant library of the ancient world, the original Library of Alexandria aimed to capture the world's knowledge through the collection and storage of books. Following numerous fires which contributed to the eventual destruction of the library, The New Library of Alexandria was built in 2002 to commemorate and emulate the original. One of the library's objectives is to be a leading institution of the digital age and one way of achieving this goal is allowing visitors of the planetarium to learn through technology. We therefore thought it was the perfect choice of image to illustrate the move to digital that Pearson Baccalaureate is making, with the launch of more interactive digital resources to allow new ways of learning. We must admit it's also a spectacular building to look at, so that made the decision a bit easier!
