Senior Project Mission Statement: As the second group of seniors at McNair High School, you have the amazing ability to continue defining your school. Taking ownership of your future and the world in which you live allows you to make a difference, which is why the Senior Project Mission Statement is:
“Senior Project: Make It Yours!”
Senior Project Class Schedule: The Senior Project is taught in the English and Government/Economics classes. When a student is in English, he/she will write the research paper portion of the project. When a student is in Government/Economics, he/she will complete the fieldwork hours and end product portion of the project. The portfolio and speech are due for all students at the end of the year. If a student fails a portion of the project during the first semester, the student can retake the class if necessary, but WILL ATTEND SUMMER SCHOOL to complete the senior project.
Grading Policy: The Senior Project is taught in the English and Government/Economics classes. Therefore, completion of the project will have an impact on the grade of the student in those classes. No more than 25% of the student’s English grade will be comprised of the process of writing the research paper and the score he/she receives on the research paper. No more than 25% of the student’s second term Government/Economics grade will be comprised of the process of completing the fieldwork hours and project, and the score he/she receives on the Fieldwork/End Product.
After-School Sessions: Tutoring sessions will be available for students to receive extra help with their Senior Projects throughout the school year. Information and dates will be announced in advance. If you have questions, come to room 232 after school!
Suggestion to Students: It is in your best interest to set aside project time on your two week breaks. If you need help or are unsure about anything, ASK!
