Personal Projects

What is the Personal Project?  The 10th-grade Personal Project is something you do, as an individual, on a topic that interests you. It’s to show the skills you have developed over the years through the MYP Approaches to Learning, and applying them to one of the MYP Global Contexts.

To do your project, you need to complete a process journal. The journal helps to record your information while you’re working on your project. You should use the journal regularly for recording your quotes, pictures, and ideas. This journal will help you to write your final Personal Project paper.

The paper is a report in which you demonstrate your involvement with the project by summarizing the skills and experiences recorded in the process journal. Your paper should have between 1,500-3,500 words.

During the journaling and paper processes, you will be assigned an advisor to guide you on the timelines and requirements. You will meet with your advisor three times: when you start your project, halfway through your project, and at the conclusion of your project.

It is also helpful to find a mentor to guide your process, this person could be a teacher, a parent, or a community expert.

When you finish your project, there will be a Showcase, it is where you share your projects with your schoolmates along with your paper and journals.

Upon completing the project you will be honored at a recognition celebration.

While Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, and LSU are looking like favorites to clinch  the 4 playoff spots of the College Football Playoff, competition is really close to count out your team now.

We might see another dominant game from Jalen Hurts this week, as his resume continues to go up each week for the Heisman Award, and he remains the frontrunner to win the award.

This week should be very interesting and nail biting as some of the best teams in the country are ready to faceoff for the number 1 spot.
