Garfield Heights High School
Senior Project 2016
Seniors in good academic standing may choose to complete a “senior project” as an alternative to completing their high school careers in the traditional fashion. While senior project assignments may include job shadowing OR service projects, all participants are responsible for obtaining parental permission, locating their own project site, securing reliable transportation, and completing all the necessary requirements.
Student Requirements Include:
1. Senior Project Proposal Form – This form must be signed by your off-site supervisor and a parent or guardian and turned in to Mr. Fording by March 11, 2016.
2. Senior Project Action Research Project – This mini-project must center around the community service project or career you have agreed to shadow. This must be completed and turned in to Mr. Fording by April 8, 2016.
3. A minimum of 50 hours of on-site time – Participants are required to keep a log/timesheet as evidence of completing at least 50 hours of shadowing or community service from April 25th - May 18th . Logs must be signed by your off-site supervisor daily. Log sheets are due May 19, 2016.
4. Senior Project Reflection - A typed, one-page narrative discussing your personal experience. Consider the things you learned, what you liked, what you disliked, if you would do this again, etc. . . Reflections are due with your logs on May 19, 2016.
5. Senior Project Oral Presentation - All participants are required to share information about their senior project experience. Presentations will be given on Thursday, May 19, 2016, at the high school. Parents and off-site supervisors are encouraged to attend. Your presentation will be science-fair style and must include some form of visual aid (poster board, charts, handouts, etc. ) and students are required to dress appropriately.
