Instructor: Teresa Marquis
The Extended Essay comprises a significant component of the IB Diploma Programme. Many students find this component to be one of the most rewarding aspects of their IB Diploma experience, as well as one of the most challenging. In order to maximize the benefits and learning from this experience, Elmwood is offering an intensive Extended Essay Workshop. The workshop will be taught by Teresa Marquis (Elmwood’s English Instructional Leader). Students will be guided expertly through all aspects of the Extended Essay process: research skills, source assessment and citation, essay structure and thesis statements. By the end of the week, participants will have completed their essay outline and thesis, identified an excellent range of source material, and received individualized feedback on next steps.
This course will be open to IB Diploma candidates in the Ottawa area so space is limited in order to ensure an excellent student/teacher ratio. This course is also open to non-IB students currently in Grades 11 and 12 who are interested in improving their research and writing skills.
