A ruling in our parish has made "senior projects" a requirement to graduation from high school. This morning I sat as a judge for one set of students at a local high school. What fun! I thought all seven students I saw did a great job! Of course, some better than others...but all had done work and seemed to have learned something along the way - which was the goal.
One girl ended up researching literacy and wrote a children's book - very creative! She also illustrated the book in water colors - she did a great job!
All seven talked about attending college in the fall - several wanted to be doctors....a few were clueless about college major, but all were ready to graduate high school.
