PAPER –RESEARCH BASED AND CITED (SEE EDMODO FOR REQUIREMENTS)
PORTFOLIO: THE ACTUAL “NOTEBOOK” DOCUMENTING YOUR WORK
PRESENTATION: 8-10 MINUTES IN LENGTH B EFORE A SELECTED PANEL OF JUDGES
Remember to check the calendar and/or timelines for due dates. Items due should be turned in to your seminar teacher in your portfolio. If you will not be in attendance at school that day for any reason, you must make arrangements for your material to be turned in on time. Due dates are the LAST day, not the ONLY day. Consequences for late work will be outlined in the Graduation Project seminars at the beginning of the semester.
There are four types of forms on the EDMODO site and they are divided by category:
Optional - may be needed based on what your product is; most people will need the Photo/Video Release form if people other than themselves are in the visuals.
Required - everyone must complete these at some point during the project
Info - gives background, instructions, guidelines, directions, etc. for parts of the project
Rubric - gives the scoring or evaluation criteria for each component of the project; should be included when component is turned in for evaluation
Sample - provides examples of items students must include in their portfolios
