MYP Personal Project (MYP 4 and 5)

Course Concept

The MYP Personal Project is a significant and independent project that students in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (MYP) typically undertake during MYP 4 (Grade 10) and MYP 5 (Grade 11). This project is designed to allow students to explore their passions, interests, and curiosities while developing and showcasing their skills in various areas. Here are the key details about the MYP Personal Project, along with its course objectives:

  • Investigation: Students are expected to identify a community issue or need by conducting thorough research. This involves defining the problem, its causes, and its consequences.
  • Planning: Students develop a well-structured plan that outlines how they intend to address the identified issue. This includes setting clear goals, creating a timeline, and allocating resources effectively.
  • Taking Action: The core of the project involves students actively working to address the community issue. They may organize events, initiate campaigns, or carry out activities that contribute to a positive change.
  • Reflection: Throughout the project, students engage in continuous reflection. They analyze the impact of their actions on the community, consider what they have learned, and assess the challenges they faced.
  • Communication: Students are encouraged to communicate their project's purpose, progress, and outcomes effectively, both within the school community and with external stakeholders.

1. Understanding The Project Objectives

The MYP Personal Project seeks to foster independent inquiry and self-discovery in students. Its objectives include identifying a personal goal, developing a detailed plan, conducting research, creating a product or outcome, and reflecting on the learning journey. These objectives encourage students to explore their passions, build skills, and demonstrate their understanding of the world.

2. Documenting The Process

Documenting the process in the MYP Personal Project is crucial. Students maintain a process journal where they record their research, planning, challenges, and reflections. This documentation offers a comprehensive view of their journey, showcasing their efforts, decision-making, and personal growth throughout the project.

3. Planning

In the MYP (Middle Years Programme) Personal Project, "planning" is a pivotal stage. It involves setting clear goals, outlining strategies, establishing timelines, and allocating resources. Effective planning ensures that students can successfully execute their projects, guiding them toward their desired outcomes while developing essential organizational and time management skills.

4. Applying Skills

In the context of the MYP (Middle Years Programme) Personal Project, "applying skills" refers to the practical use of acquired knowledge, research, and abilities to create a tangible product or outcome that aligns with the project's objectives. This stage demonstrates a student's capability to translate their learning into real-world solutions or creative expressions.

5. Reflecting

In the MYP (Middle Years Programme) Personal Project, "reflecting" is the phase where students critically evaluate their project journey. They analyze their experiences, challenges, and the impact of their actions. Reflection promotes self-awareness, deepens understanding, and encourages personal growth, enhancing the overall learning experience.

6. Reporting The Personal Project

Reporting in the MYP (Middle Years Programme) Personal Project involves presenting the project's objectives, process, and outcomes to an audience, which typically includes teachers, peers, and sometimes community members. It includes sharing the project's journey, challenges faced, reflections, and the final product or outcome. Effective reporting skills are essential to convey the project's significance and the student's learning experience.

7. The Role Of The Supervisor

Supervisors in the MYP Personal Project provide guidance and support to students. They help define project goals, offer feedback, monitor progress, and ensure adherence to project guidelines. Supervisors play a vital role in fostering independent inquiry, skill development, and self-reflection, ultimately guiding students toward successful project completion.

8. Managing The Process And Your Time

In the MYP (Middle Years Programme) Personal Project, efficient management of the process and time is crucial. Students must plan tasks, set realistic timelines, allocate resources effectively, and balance research, creation, and reflection stages. This ensures project success, timely completion, and the development of valuable time management skills.

  • When is the best time to get started?
    expand_more

    The earlier the better! When students come to us right before it is time to apply to college, there is only so much we can do. We can certainly help these students with score improvements and craft as compelling an application as possible, but we are given experiences and data points that cannot be altered.

    When students come to us early in their educational careers, we pair them with a counselor to help them develop as applicants, students, and people early on. We help students strategize early, build their profiles, and stand out from their peers. We help students explore and develop their academic interests, engage in unique and meaningful extracurricular activities, strengthen their personal qualities and leadership skills, and ultimately, position them to get into the best schools possible.

    It takes A LOT of hard work, strategy, determination, and self-reflection to get into the school of your dreams. At AP Guru, we are here, every step of the way, to help you get there.

  • Do test prep courses work?
    expand_more

    Yes! Standardized tests focus on a small, unique set of skills and topics. By knowing exactly what types of questions are on the test, a student gains a distinct advantage. Furthermore, a great tutoring company can build on this advantage by providing a highly individualized learning experience and a wealth of fantastic strategies for all types of students.  We have the evidence from thousands of students across 10+ years that great improvement is possible for nearly everyone.

  • Do you only help students who want to go to top schools?
    expand_more

    No. We know that each student is different and has unique goals and aspirations. Our focus is to help each student excel in the tests and exams they are preparing towards.

  • What kind of results should I expect?
    expand_more

    In terms of academic scores, for students not already at the top of the range, we typically want to see at least a 20 percentile rank improvement (the actual raw score this translates to varies across the scale). Going from the 50th to 70th percentile or from the 70th to 90th typically opens up a whole new range of schools for students.
