HELA9 Extended Projects
Overview of directions for students working on the Extended Project 2016-2017
Why An Extended Project?
Long-range planning, collaboration and leadership development, and authentic (often public) productions of projects are all solid reasons for application of ELA skills. By the end of the eight month process (October – April), students will have enacted programs which may be sustained and expanded for years to come. Along the way, they may hit major Standards in composition, research, and media design along with dozens of minor standards in organization, critical thinking, communication, and others.
Organization Student teams of 3-8
