what should you be doing for your senior project right now
What should you be doing for your senior project right now?
  • Make sure all your paperwork is updated and current
    • Did you change something? Update your proposal, parent awareness form, and mentor agreement form.
    • Make sure you’re OFFICALLY approved with Mrs. Downs
      • Tuck those papers away in a safe spot-class portfolio folder?
  • Keep updating your hour log with the work you’re doing.
    • Next hour log check is Thursday, March 27th. 15 hours should be completed by then!
senior project database get this in asap
Senior Project Database-get this in ASAP!
  • A WHOLE LOT OF YOU!
    • This is where you go on the CHS homepage, click in the student section, and then follow the directions on the Google Form.
    • Important step for Mrs. Downs-please do this by FRIDAY (if you’re not sure how to, a really quick stop into the Career Center is the best way to do it!)
portfolio connection to srp
Portfolio connection to SRP
  • All those good revision skills will be put to MAXIMUM effect with your senior research paper!
    • You’ll self-edit, peer-edit, and get a teacher edit before your final
    • You’ll be better prepared to take suggestions for improvement to make sure you pass the first (or at least second!) attempt
  • After the SRP, you’ll feel like the last portfolio pieces are a breeze! 

Bell Work 1/28/14
  • List any questions you have about the Senior Project Research Paper. Do you have an idea yet about what you want to write about?
why research
Why Research?
  • To demonstrate a depth of knowledge related to your senior project topic
  • To answer questions about a topic you are interested in learning more about
  • To practice synthesizing information from multiple sources
  • To prepare yourself for the academic expectations of college
  • To demonstrate an ability to work and think independently
  • Or… just to meet the requirement for graduation and to get credit for my class!
the hardest part s
The Hardest Part(s)?
  • Gathering resources appropriate to the task and reading level (independent, instructional, frustration)
  • Reading complex materials and identifying author’s claims
  • Understanding your sources well enough that you can enter into the discourse and add your own reflections and insights in your paper
  • It’s not really about writing, it’s about reading!
our plan of attack
Our plan of attack
  • Check out this packet carefully
  • Read over the first and second pages, please, and be ready to ask any questions at __________
library and lab times
Library and Lab Times
  • Woah…we have a lot. Why?
    • Because it takes a lot of time to find, read, and take notes on good sources
    • Because it gives you more time to work collaboratively with teachers, librarians, and each other
    • Because I ask you to demonstrate skills throughout the process so you’re more likely to have a good final product
    • Because I have high expectations for quality, and I want to give you class time to complete most of it
    • Because we don’t add any other content until after you’ve submitted your teacher draft
      • Don’t look a gift teacher in the mouth…use this time wisely, or it will be reduced!
      • Know where we are each day, and be on time to the location!
      • Behave respectfully in those shared spaces-we want to be allowed to come in for all that time!
topic selection
Topic Selection
  • This paper is about an issue related to your project; it’s not about your ACTUAL work
  • It’s not a report of facts, it’s more of a survey of attitudes and researched arguments about the issue
  • It’s not a “pro-con” paper- you’re not trying to persuade someone to agree with a position
  • It’s somewhere in the middle…present content objectively, focus on OTHER’s opinions, not yours
good topics should be
Good topics should be:
  • Manageable
    • Narrow enough
  • Argumentative/Analytical
    • Not persuasive, not a report
  • Relevant
    • Connected to your project
  • Fun!
    • Something you actually want to put this much time and effort into learning about!
