Senior Project

&

Senior Product

Senior Project is a required course in which seniors select a modern-day issue to delve into throughout the school year. Students develop an arguable research question, read research, write an argumentative research paper, and develop a product that addresses the issue.

Senior Product is the most open-ended segment of the Senior Project, which can involve anything from creating a social media page, filming and editing a documentary, writing legislation, and more. This website is the educator-focused segment of this product, following lessons taught at a local middle school.
