Each year students in MYP8 explore the theme of Love in different subjects during a six week period.
The purpose of this unit is to explore the subject from various perspectives. For example:
- The science of reproduction, pregnancy and infectious diseases
- Sexual identity and LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, Queer)
- Interpretation of love in Art, Literature and Music
- Interpersonal relationships
This year students visited museums, a youth health clinic, attended a writing workshop and Prokofiev’s Romeo & Juliet concert at Konserthuset, led by the Taiwanese conductor Mei-Ann Chen.
The students then worked on their own Book of Love, which they exhibited in the Götaberg library.
