The Personal Project is a culminating activity in the Middle Years Program (MYP), which allows students to work on a large-scale project of their initiative and creativity. The project provides them with a chance for their own personal inquiry into a topic that they feel passionate about and enables them to apply the Approaches to Learning (ATL) skills that they have acquired throughout their MYP experience. The Personal Project is also excellent preparation for the IB Diploma Program and the Extended Essay.
The Role of the Personal Project Supervisor
Each student will be assigned a Personal Project Supervisor to help guide and assist them throughout the process. Students will meet regularly with their Supervisor to review their progress and to receive feedback.
The Personal Project is introduced at the end of Year 10 and continues to the Spring of Year 11. It is expected that students will work on their projects continuously throughout this time, in addition to their assigned class work.
Assessing the Personal Project
Student success in the Personal Project is assessed through the Final Report. Students can access a detailed rubric explaining the various strands of the three assessment criteria. Their grade for the Personal Project is determined by their Supervisor and will count towards their final MYP grade.
Personal Project Resources
Throughout the process, the Personal Project Coordinator holds PP-related workshops, as well as gives additional support for Year 10 and Year 11 students. All students can access Personal Project resources (detailed timelines, templates, forms, presentations, rubrics) through a shared Google Drive and in Google Classroom.
