Carson Graham Secondary
North Vancouver School District
The MYP Personal Project
The Personal Project is a practical exploration of a topic of the student’s choice through the cycle of inquiry, action and reflection.  All Carson Graham students participate in the Personal Project through a blended model course (on-line and face to face) beginning in the spring of grade 9 and finishing in the spring of grade 10.

The aims of the Personal Project are to encourage and enable students to:

  • participate in a sustained, self-directed inquiry within a global context

  • generate creative new insights and develop deeper understandings through in-depth investigation

  • demonstrate the skills, attitudes and knowledge required to complete a project over an extended period of time

  • communicate effectively in a variety of situations

  • demonstrate responsible action through, or as a result of, learning

  • appreciate the process of learning and take pride in their accomplishments.
