Course Description and Objectives

The goal of the senior project is to give the senior class an opportunity to design, develop, and delineate to various stakeholders a project of interest during their final year at P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School.  Typical projects fall into one of the following categories: creative, academic, career, or service oriented projects.


The senior project is a graduation requirement.  Tangentially connected with the senior project is another graduation requirement, namely, the 75 community service hours that every student must also complete.


To earn a passing grade in the senior project course and receive credit, students must meet deadlines, closely follow their Canvas course page, and/or respond to emails related to the senior project from the instructor, and attend any required meetings.


Seniors will develop an appropriate senior project topic proposal with clearly articulated goals.  The topic proposal must be emailed to the instructor, in the proper format explained on the Canvas course description page, on the due date September 1st or 2nd.  Proposals must be approved before the project can be initiated.


All students will write a variety of papers including a research paper on the aforementioned approved topic, and design a Google Slides presentation which will be evaluated by faculty and community judges on Presentation Day.
