CHALLENGES Focus for project 1 and how to measure the outcomes Timescales
BENEFITS Encourages young people to think about how to approach a piece of research Encourages them to plan effectively To set realistic targets and timescales To build in successful evaluation
It is the one thing, certainly in Modern Languages, that young people do which has the emphasis on the process rather than the outcome.
Finally What our two candidates thought: ‘ I’ve really enjoyed doing my project. All the self-evaluation involved has been especially interesting and useful since in Advanced Highers we rarely get the opportunity to step back and review our work. The freedom allowed by the template of the project has allowed me to cultivate my ideas with independence which will help prepare me for more independent work at university.’
And candidate 2.... ‘Personally I have really enjoyed the flexibility of this project as it has allowed me to combine my two main interests in the form of a project that doesn’t get in the way of my other school subjects. I have thoroughly enjoyed learning so many new skills and discovering new ideas which will be beneficial for future research and studies in university.’
