The personal project is an individual project that you choose and create. Your personal project topic is something that you will enjoy learning more about through in-depth study and thinking. The personal project will take lots of time, but is something that is done completely outside of the classroom.
You will begin this challenging task during the spring of your 9th grade year and it will be due in the late winter of your 10th grade year. There are three main pieces to the personal project. They are: a process journal, the product/outcome, and the report.
The personal project may take many forms, for example:
an original work of art (visual, dramatic, or performance)
a written work on a special topic (literary, social, psychological, or anthropological)
a piece of literary fiction (that is, creative writing)
an original science experiment
a presentation of a business or organizational plan, a special event, or the development of a new community or student organization.
You and your supervisor (a teacher assigned to you) must agree that whatever form the personal project takes, the finished product allows you to investigate and focus on a theme, topic and/or issue closely connected to at least one area of interaction of the MYP. It must include a report, as detailed in the “Personal Project Guide”.
For more detailed information, refer to your PERSONAL PROJECT GUIDE (see below).
