The Extended Essay and Reflective Projects are required components of the Diploma and Career-Related Programmes respectively.  For both, it is designed to familiarize students with college-level research and writing along with allowing them to dig deeper into an academic discipline or career pathway in a manner that is personally interesting.  Students work with a supervisor who guides and advises their research over the course of a year that spans both Grade 11 and Grade 12.

The Extended Essay

Below you will find the EE Reflections on Progress and Planning Form.  Candidates should fill out the First Reflection Session after the initial meeting and in-depth discussion with his/her supervisor, the Interim Reflection after meeting with the supervisor to discuss the “official” first draft, and the Final Reflection – Viva Voce after meeting with the supervisor to discuss the final product.  This is, of course, in addition to candidate reflections that are undertaken along the way to track progress and ideas in a separate reflection space.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  This form MUST be edited and saved in Adobe Reader or it will not work properly.
