MYP: From principles into practice

The personal project is a significant body of work undertaken by all MYP students over an extended period of time in the fifth year of the programme. It is an important aspect of the MYP and is the product of the student's own initiative and creativity, reflecting a personal appreciation of the areas of interaction and the application of approaches to learning skills. The personal project should be seen as the culminating activity through which students present, in a truly personal way, their understanding of real-world themes, concepts and issues using the areas of interaction. Students' experience of approaches to learning should prepare them gradually for working independently and developing a project over an extended period of time. (pg 15)
