As part of the MYP Program, all 10th grade students will complete the Personal Project, which engages students in a wide range of activities to extend their knowledge and understanding and to develop their skills and attitudes.
This student-planned learning activity includes:
- deciding what they want to learn about, identity what they already know, and discovering what they will need to know to complete the project
- creating proposals or criteria for their project, planing their time and materials, and recording development of the project
- making decisions, developing understandings and solving problems, communication with their supervisor and others, and creating a product or developing an outcome evaluating the product/outcome and reflecting on their project and learning.
As students become involved in the self-initiated and self-directed learning process, they will find it easier to construct in-depth knowledge on their topic, and develop an understanding of themselves as learners.
