Research is formalized curiosity. It is poking and prying with a purpose.
—Zora Neale Hurston
Please join us at Colchester High School on Thursday, May 24 beginning at 7:00 p.m. CHS seniors will present their Senior Seminar action research projects to the community in a gallery-style, casual format.
The event, which takes place each semester, provides students with an opportunity to share the results of their efforts with their peers and with the community, allowing them to engage in conversations about their learning and experiences.
The extensive projects—comprehensive research that includes interviews, field research, and community service—are required for successful completion of the Senior Seminar course, which itself is a graduation requirement. They are designed to allow the students to direct their own learning based upon their interests. The projects culminate in a research paper, project publication, class and public presentations, and a reflection essay.
The May 24 event will showcase projects representing the following topics:
Decriminalization of Drugs
Arts in Education
Concussion Awareness & Prevention
School Budget Campaign
Agriculture in Education
Concussions in Sports
Abolishing the Electoral College
