1st Meeting: —Seniors meet with mentors. Schedule meeting location and time with your mentor. Bring your SCP Packet. Mentor goes over packet and explains project to mentees. Make sure they understand the SLO's and components of the Capstone.
2nd Meeting : – Seniors meet again with their mentors. Mentors and mentees discuss progress on project and mentors answer clarification questions/look over rough draft completed to date.
3rd Meeting: – Seniors meet with their mentors. Rough draft due.
Final Project Due Date: April 25th – Mentors keep portfolio until grading.
If you wish to go for Honors, both options will have the same Honors In-Person Presentation and Interview for your Senior Capstone Project.
IN PERSON PRESENTATIONS & INTERVIEW
An In-Person Presentation or Interview allows a student to demonstrate more of his/her personality and sincerity than just the compilation in the portfolio can do. The format is similar to a job interview…dress professionally and be prepared to answer probing questions.
The interviews will take place on date to be determined. All Seniors will be emailed out if they wish to do an Honors Presentation, be sure to respond so you can sign up for an interview time. Interviews will be no longer than 15 minutes
