IB MYP PERSONAL PROJECT SHOWCASE

The IB MYP Personal Project Showcase will take place on Wednesday, April 6 from 7:45am – 2:00pm and again from 5:30pm – 6:30pm in the Chandler Center for the Arts foyer. The personal project is a significant student-directed inquiry produced over an extended period, completed during the last year of the MYP. It holds an important place in the MYP and reflects the student’s experience of the program. It provides an excellent opportunity for students to produce a truly personal and creative work of their choice and to demonstrate the skills they have developed through approaches to learning. It offers students many opportunities for differentiation of learning and expression according to their individual needs. The personal nature of the project is important; the project should be based around a topic that motivates and interests the student. The process of completing the personal project contributes to the development of students in different ways. It is a student-centered, age-appropriate project that helps students construct their own conceptual understandings. It is a commitment to developing independent, lifelong learners as reflected in the IB learner profile. There will also be an IB MYP Completion Ceremony in the Bogle Theater at 6pm on Wednesday, April 6.
