HELA9 Extended Projects Introduction
Overview of directions for students working on the Extended Project.
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 (September – 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 3-5
Date May 1, 2019

Most HELA9 teams produce podcasts. From philosophical debates to conspiracy theories, and from food reviews to dramatic fiction, the winter/spring productions promise something for everyone. Follow us and find your favorite programs in our Studio.
Will you create your own program or add a new season to a previous program?
Other Projects include website design, online publications, and live events, often at The Roost.
