Unit 6: Personal Project Paper & Expo


CONCEPTUAL UNDERSTANDING

Students can demonstrate their perspective on their learning by communicating  their approaches to learning skills throughout the process and the resources needed to develop their project. Students will discuss the process of  inquiring, acting, and reflecting after investigating, planning, acting, and reflecting on the Personal Project. 


KEY CONCEPT


Students will communicate their process for the Personal Project orally and in writing. 


RELATED CONCEPTS

1)  PERSPECTIVE is the position from which we observe situations, objects, facts, ideas and opinions. Perspective may be associated with individuals, groups, cultures or disciplines. Different perspectives often lead to multiple representations and interpretations

2) RESOURCES: Resources relate to the supply of a commodity or of information or knowledge about a topic.
