What have you contributed, as a result of this project, to the community in which we live? Uh, I don’t think I contributed much if anything, I just wanted to make people more aware of situations that could be happening throughout our lives and our family and friend’s lives. It was a topic that I really wanted to discuss since it is something I am very passionate about.
If I were to do this project again, I would want to manage my time better and with my partner, work on my video and make it a bit stronger and more fluid.
What’s something I want next year’s grade eight students to know about the Capstone Project? Two things. Don’t slack off in terms of finding reliable primary and secondary sources. The facts and information you gather is a major part of your entire essay and it’s the foundation of what you’re going to write. Without, you’ll have a lot of trouble in terms of having a good structural piece of writing. The second thing is time management. Throughout this project, if you do not plan your time wisely whilst writing the essay and making the video, you need to manage your time so you don’t fall behind nor stay up until two am finishing everything. That might sound fun and all, but trust me, it really is not.
