Phase 4: Reflecting
January - February - March
The personal project encourages you to practice and strengthen your approaches to learning (ATL) skills, to consolidate prior and subject-specific learning, and to develop an area of personal interest. The personal project provides an excellent opportunity for you to produce a truly personal and often creative product/outcome and to demonstrate a consolidation of your learning in the MYP. The project offers many opportunities for differentiation of learning and expression according to your individual needs.
The personal nature of the project is important; the project should revolve around a challenge that motivates and interests you. You must develop a personal project independently.
