For girls entering Grade 12 in September 2018
FULL DAY: 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
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 of this experience, Elmwood is offering an intensive Extended Essay Workshop as part of its Summer Academy 2018. This workshop will be taught by Teresa Marquis (Elmwood’s English Instructional Leader and experienced IB teacher). 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 the all-important essay outline and thesis statement, 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 10 and 11 who are interested in improving their research and writing skills.
