The NIS PPP Student Guide contains a time line, step by step process, tips and reminders to support you in your journey.
It is time to show specifications to your supervisor.
Please make an appointment to see your supervisor in person this week. Bring your journal and show where you are in the process.
You need to present a plan to bring your project ” UP TO DATE” . You should be ready to start creation. See guide :
Week 18: Meet your supervisor this week to:
1. Present update on “almost completed” product
2. Present up to date process journal ( not on the computer screen anymore)
3. Show to supervisor “applied information” during creation
4. Get a “guestimated” grade for Criterion A again, and a first impression of D
5. Present plan of action to complete product and report (see due dates below)
A: Product completed and “submittable” to supervisor on Friday of week 19.
B: First Draft of PPP Report due to supervisor on Friday of week 20.
C: PPP Product and PPP final Report due to PPP coordinator (Mr. Morin) on February 6 (Week 22).
D: PPP exhibition on March 7 (Week 24)
WEEK 17: Creating YOUR PRODUCT
Remember to maintain a detailed process journal during creation.
Your product is DUE to be completed soon after our return in January. This means that your product needs to be SUBMIT-ABLE by Wednesday of week 19. You should be able to self-assess Criteria A-D DURING THE HOLIDAY. You are still allowed to make improvements on these sections. You should also be able to assess Criterion E by your return in January.
We hope you have a clear plan of action before we meet again in January.
SAFE & HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
At this point successful students:
During the Creation phase students are required to maintain their Process Journal with detailed and reflective entries. It is also a time to pull out your specifications and try to respect them. The creation of your product is helping you achieve your goal.
D: Apply Information could be improve or define during Creation if it is not already completed. Here are some paragraph starters to help you:
“These two sources contain contradicting information. I will need to determine why… First I will… ”
“Since I have learned that… (some information), this affects my project because … ”
“Based on my research, the following factors are most central in creating my product because… ”
“One way for me to test this (information) is to … (outline steps).”
“Before doing my research, I hadn’t realised that … (some information). This means that I will … ” (identify and explain some action you will take).
