  18. 18. The Personal Project ... MYP’s Main event How it all fits together The goal needs to be specific enough to guide and drive the project forward and allow for assessment of achievement. The journal is the anchor for everything, If the journal is maintained it contributes to both the project and the report while reflecting on the goal, tying everything together. Overall it will contain about 50% of the assessable material. The project report is the reflection and explanation of the goal, planning, learning and experiences based on the journal entries and doing the project. The project is the culmination of the goal,planning and learning based on the journal entries.

  26. 26. Questions from parentsHow long should it all take to do the Personal Project?It is recommended the actual project take about 50 hours to complete.The planning time is additional, we will be working hard to make sure the students plan for something that is challenging but still achievable.Some students will spend more time than this on their project, but it needs to be balanced with everything else they are doing.A guide would be that between 1-2 hours a week for the entire length of the project would help with time management, project completion to asatisfactory level and continuity of thoughts and plans.Confucius: “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”It is not the time it takes - it is the time you give.Will there be in school time allocated for the Personal Project?The personal project is essentially completed in the students own time - this includes meetings with supervisors, planning, research, the project itself and the reportWe will be providing Approaches to learning spotlight skill sessions etc through the year which may include some of the following : how to arrange an interview,creating questions, referencing, sources of information, layout and style guides, using a gantt graph for planning, writing email / letters of introduction, thank you notesetc.Please remember that all staff involved in the personal project as supervisors and co-ordinators will be doing the personal project in their own time as well.How are marks allocated?There are 7 criteria for the personal project, each of these are assessed according to the specifications included in each criteria, the maximum level ofachievement for each criteria is 4 points. The total points for the PP is 28, this total is then standardised to the MYP points systems - with a 7 being thehighest level of achievement in a subject. Please see the student guide for further details on this.How will supervisors be allocated?The students goals will be displayed without names and staff will be able to select the goal according to their interests.Each staff member will supervise 2 students, with PP Co-ordinator and MYP Co-ordinator supervising a few more.Students will be responsible for making and keeping appointments and following up with their supervisors.
