Imagine if you could spend 25 hours delving into the passion of your choosing! What might that be? It might make for a great dinner conversation with your family. That is exactly what our MYP Grade 10 students have been exploring for the past 7 months.
Across this past week AISL MYP Grade 10 students celebrated the culmination of their personal project journeys with an exhibition of their work open to all secondary students and families.
The IB’s MYP Personal Project is an integral part of a student’s IB journey, which allows the student to explore any passion and to develop a product that they assess against criteria of their own design.
Students’ personal projects covered a wide range of subjects - from boat-building to dress-making to writing code for a computer to play music!
In addition to making the project, students also write a 3500 (max) word report, which details their choice of global context, their goal, process, research methods, and a reflection on the ATL skills (approaches to learning) they developed through the process. They also practised the oral part of their presentation for community members, as being confident speakers is another valuable life-long skill that requires practice.
Many thanks to the teachers who coordinated the Personal Project process: Ms. Ingrid Turner, MYP Coordinator; Ms. Terry Maguire, Secondary Librarian; Ms. Dana Schwarzkopf, MYP Gr10 Design Teacher, and Ms. Olaia Ramon, MYP Spanish Teacher. Thank you, as well, to our parents for supporting students in their learning journey!
The Leopard's Tale is our main medium to keep our families informed on such things as the day to day happenings on campus, after school activities, summaries of any arts and sports events, helpful resources, and important dates and reminders.
