Senior Project

 

Dear Students and Parents:

 

Airline High School is participating in a rigorous program called Senior Project during the 2017-2018 school year. This program is supported by the Louisiana State Department of Education and has been implemented across the Bossier Parish School System.  We have high expectations for our seniors. We believe all graduating students should be actively engaged and rigorously involved in learning and applying sophisticated skills. After all, seniors should represent the most skilled and educated students in the high school.

 

Airline High School and Bossier Parish place great emphasis on this program. The Senior Project grade will be given through English IV and replaces the English IV literary research paper component previously required for graduation.  In order for a senior to receive credit for his Senior Project, he must successfully complete ALL FOUR COMPONENTS within the semester he is enrolled in English IV: Research Paper, Product, Portfolio, and Oral Presentation. (Note: in order to present to the community panel, students must successfully complete the required practices, both classroom and teacher panel). If a student does not successfully complete each component, no credit will be given and this will result in failing English IV.

 

Airline High school believes that seniors should be leaders and educational role models for younger students.  Success in life, school, employment, relationships, and financial responsibility all require hard work, goal setting, commitment, and problem-solving abilities. The Senior Project provides students the opportunity to demonstrate and apply the sophisticated skills they have acquired throughout their educational careers.

 

Airline is committed to the idea that every educator is a teacher of seniors. In reality, seniors are the end result of a huge effort involving a large number of people. The little child in kindergarten is simply a “senior in progress.” Quality Senior Project programs embrace all staff, all seniors, and the community.  Senior Project represents a long-term educational policy that requires vision and continued commitment. The purpose of Senior Project is to allow students to choose the content of their learning, to shape the process of that learning, and to produce high-quality work that is the culmination of their academic journey.  

 

Each senior is responsible for the development and completion of his own Senior Project. Airline High School has designed a plan to offer students guidance throughout the project. The administration, faculty, and senior project committee are committed to the success of all seniors and feel confident that this project will enrich their learning and help prepare them for a successful future.

 

Sincerely,

Senior Project Committee

Student Log Assignments 2017-2018

Create a Document in your Google Docs Senior Project folder and title it “Student Logs, Last name.”  On this one document, you will do all 8 logs, one per page.

  1. On the top of each log entry, type the following information: Log #, name, date, hours worked on the product since last log, mentor name, and title of your project.  

  2. Each log needs to be in Times New Roman, 12-point font, and double spaced.

  3. Type (or copy) each of the questions in bold before answering it in plain font below the question.

  4. Insert a page break between each log (with your cursor below the last typed line of the log, choose the “insert” tab and “page break,” or put your cursor at the end of the log and press the command key and enter at the same time. )

  5. When a log is due, you will create a copy of your document, go to the Google Classroom assignment and “ADD” the copy to the assignment.  For each due date, you will submit all logs that you have completed up to that point.  

Example:

What are your feelings as you begin Senior Project? What projects have you considered? What steps are you taking to help you make a final decision?

 

I’m a little worried about Senior Project at this point because it seems like there are so many different components, and I tend to be a procrastinator.  I know that I’m going to have to stay on top of it, and that is a terrifying notion to me.  I have considered several different building projects because I've never done woodworking before but the idea of creating a usable piece of furniture seems pretty gratifying.  To make a final decision, I spoke with a woods craftsman, and he helped me narrow down my choices based on the cost of materials, time and level of difficulty.

 

Student Log #1

What are your feelings as you begin Senior Project? What projects have you considered? What steps are you taking to help you make a final decision?

 

Student Log #2

Have you done any research on your product? What is your first choice for a product? Why is this your choice?

What successes or disappointments have you experienced?

 

Student Log #3

List everything you have done for your product so far. Please include phone calls, research on the product, e-mails, etc.

What has been the most frustrating thing so far? What have you done that you are most proud of?

 

Student Log #4 

How do you feel about your progress on the paper so far? What are you on schedule with, and what are you behind on?

How is your product going? What are your concerns so far? Don't forget to add up your product time since the last log.

 

Students Log #5

Based on what you have completed on your paper so far, do you feel more or less stressed about the paper since the last log? How is your progress toward your page requirement?  What reasons can you give for your difficulties? List your product activities since the last log. Don't forget to add up your hours since the last log.   

 

Student Log #6

Now that you’ve written a complete draft of your research, how do you feel? Are you on track with your product? List your most recent product activities and total up the product hours since your last log. What do you feel is your biggest accomplishment so far?       

 

Student Log #7

List in detail what you have done on your product since the last log.

How many meetings have you had with your mentor? Have you kept your paperwork up to date?

 

REMEMBER, you must have photo and video evidence of the 20 hours of work you have done.  This evidence must include pictures of you WITH your mentor

 

Student Log #8

You are now finished with your product. Total up all hours and tell how much time was spent on each product activity.   Ensure that this information is also documented in your Product Binder as well as on your Product and Mentor Hours log.

 Example: Research on designs- 2.5 hours

                 Creating pattern- 2 hours

                 Gathering materials 1.5 hours

                  Cutting and organizing pieces 4.5 hours

             Total: 21 hours
