MYP Personal Project Fair | VIDEO
Congratulations to our Grade 10 students who participated in a successful MYP Personal Project Fair! Join two students from Grade 9 as they find out firsthand what it takes to complete the project, one they will start working on at the end of this school year.
THE MYP PERSONAL PROJECT
From restoring an old motorbike to learning how to play the Chinese Flute, Grade 10 students at Antwerp International School took charge for the 2022 MYP Personal Project Fair.
The MYP Personal Project is for Grade 10 students, those in the final year of the Middle Years Programme. These students, who are headed to the Diploma Programme next school year, have been working to complete their projects since the end of Grade 9, when they were first introduced to it.
Creating a product goal and a learning goal, students mapped their own journeys to completing their product, writing a detailed report and learning valuable approaches to learning (ATL) and life-skills along the way.
During the Personal Project Fair, students showcased their learning to the school community, showing what it means to be a life-long IB learner.
The MYP Personal Project gives students a chance to learn more about a topic they are passionate about. They use all of the ATL skills they have developed in the MYP (e.g. self-management, research, communication, critical and creative thinking, collaboration).
Students complete three elements for the Personal Project:
- Product or outcome – evidence of tangible or intangible results: what the student was aiming to achieve or create
- Process journal – ideas, success criteria, developments, challenges, plans, research, possible solutions and progress reports
- Report – an account of the project and its impact, to a structure that follows the assessment criteria. The report includes a bibliography and evidence from the process journal that documents students’ development and achievements
