This week, the Middle/High School Library and Learning Commons hosted the Extended Essay Celebration event for the IB subject group “Individuals and Societies” (Business & Management, Economics, Philosophy, History and Geography).
During the first part of the evening, each of the 30 students gave a 90-second presentation of their essay, including their topic, research question, research approach, analysis, conclusion and the most important sources they used.
Following the formal part of the evening, about 50 parents, teachers and interested Grade 11 students circulated to discuss with individual presenters to gain a greater insight into their research. Many good conversations were had, enabling the students to celebrate the fruits of their labors which led to the completion of their Extended Essay.
