Community Project

A Celebration of Learning by Grade 8

Community Project

The community project is a culminating example of inquiry because the work reflects students’ ability to initiate, manage and direct their own inquiry.

The inquiry process in MYP projects involves students in a wide range of activities to extend their knowledge and understanding and to develop their skills and attitudes. These student-planned learning activities include:

•Deciding what they want to learn about, identifying what they already know, and discovering what they will need to know to complete the project

•Creating proposals or criteria for their project, planning their time and materials, and recording developments of the project

•Making decisions, developing understandings and solving problems, communicating with others, and creating a product or developing an outcome.

•Evaluating the product/outcome and reflecting on their project and their learning.
