Preparation for EE Writing Day – 03 May 2018

It’s hard to believe that your time in Grade 11 is almost over. When I count down to the end of the year, it gives me a bit of anxiety to think that we only have eight weeks left until 22 June, but it also makes me excited because it’s such an adrenaline-filled time of year!

In between now and June, you have SO much going on, and it’s vital that you remain organised and focus on your priorities. Between Project Week, IA’s, IOC’s, field trips, Group 4, and of course, the EE, you’ve got a lot to do. Google Calendar is a great tool to keep track of classes and assignments, but I’d also like to suggest Google Keep. Don’t know what this is? You can check it out here.

This is just one way I use Google Keep. It helps me to keep track of the things I need to do this week.

With EE Writing Day coming up next week, I want you to feel as organised and confident as possible so that you can have the most productive day. Below is the slide show I presented this morning. Have a look through, check out the links, and ensure you have yourself organised.

Remember, Beyoncé is always prepared. Are you?

Information & Guide to the Extended Essay. Two Different Slide Shows. Two Different Purposes.

Last week, I sent the current Grade 11 students an email outlining upcoming events taking place surrounding the Extended Essay. Mainly, I wanted to share the EE Information & Guide slide doc with them in preparation for today’s assembly, which had a bit of flair to it.

Here is the slide doc I shared last week, chock-full of information regarding the EE:

… and here is the presentation I showed the students today (thanks Beyoncé!):

As you can see, the two slide shows are quite different.

The reason I did this is because the slide doc is not meant to be presented. It’s meant to be a portal for information that is easily accessible and read by its intended audience. Today’s presentation, however, needed a little more Sasha Fierce. It doesn’t need to be read so much as it needs to be SEEN!! How else do you hold the attention of nearly 300 Grade 11 students?

More information will be forthcoming as we get closer to launching the proposals. Do let me know if you have any questions by leaving a comment below.
