(NEW 2019) Personal Project Coordinator!
Yeah! I've just been made Personal Project Coordinator at my school! Very excited about this new development. Hopefully this page explodes with content!
An MYP Personal Process Project is an independent study unit undertaken in grade 10 in which students teaching themselves a unit of study that results in a product. The purpose of this study unit is to increase their skills as students in general and to show their development by documenting the process of undertaking this study. So while the final product / result of their project is important, it's only one criteria. Most of the marks come from students showing how they improved as students for having done this project.
I'm now in my 12th year of doing PPs and am feeling very confident in doing them.
Each time I have PP students, I load up my SmartBoard and talk them through the different steps. I wind up with a series of Pages documents, all filled with advice. Again, I'm going to start uploading all my resources for the sharing. If you need any help with your PP students, please contact me or write on the chatter page - PP is a subject I love to discuss.
